PROJECT IS UNDER WAY
The Community of Malpeque Bay has hired Brooke Johnson, a summer student to begin work on an exciting project to connect members of our community.
The aim of the project is to contact as many of our residents as possible in order to create an accurate data base of names, civic and email addresses.
The purpose is to provide our residents with up to date information on Council meetings, municipal elections and guidelines, new municipal changes, EMO information and opportunities for funding community projects that may be available to residents and local businesses.
We have been asked by residents (including seasonal residents) to keep the Community informed on these important matters.
If you would like to provide your information directly to Council please email us at email@example.com or call us at 902-836-5029. Please include your name, civic and email address. Your information will remain confidential and will not be made available to any third party.
Remember, our Community boundaries include Baltic, Darnley, Hamilton, Indian River, Malpeque, Sea View and Spring Valley.
In order to facilitate the creation of the data base and in the interest of safety we are asking for volunteers to canvass the community with Brooke. We already have a volunteer from Baltic who will canvass with Brooke. If you live in one of the other districts and are interested in helping out, please call or email before June 20, 2018.
Community Funding Available
All applications must meet the criteria listed on the schedules.
For further information contact Joanne McCarvill 902-836-5029

Malpeque Bay is one of 36 sites in Canada, designated as Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Sites). It is a coastal lagoon system protected from the open sea (Gulf of St. Lawrence) by a 25-km long coastal sandspit and dune formation.
The Bay is a nesting site for the globally threatened wader, the "Piping Plover". It is also an important staging area for very large numbers of geese and ducks during spring and autumn migration periods. For more information about Birding on P.E.I. , click here.
