Public feedback wanted on upcoming legislative changes

The Province is inviting Islanders to share their comments on upcoming legal changes to modernize some of the existing laws in PEI.

As part of the Province's goal to continually modernize legislation to appropriately serve Island residents, three consultation papers are available online for people to review.

'Having modern, efficient legislation in our province that is reflective of today's realities is critical to protect our residents' overall wellbeing. It's important that Islanders have the opportunity to share their thoughts on any upcoming changes that we, as a province, make to legislation that will have a direct impact on everyone's life.'

- Justice and Public Safety Minister and Attorney General Bloyce Thompson

The feedback will help the Department of Justice consider further legislative changes to class action proceedings, statute of limitations, as well as digital assets.

Islanders, community organizations and stakeholder groups can submit their comments in English or French to [email protected] by August 31, 2021.
