PEI Budget 2018-19: How Does It Measure Up?

The Prince Edward Island government released its 2018-19 budget on April 6, 2018. Though CUPE members have cause to celebrate in some respects, the budget falls short of the recommendations CUPE PEI submitted in February 2018.

Our submission contained 9 recommendations, under the themes of increasing support for newcomers, labour law reform, long-term care & healthcare, pharmacare, seniors and child care. To read the submission in its entirety, click here.

We have carefully analyzed the budget, and want to share how the announcements measure up to our recommendations.
