“Visions of safer communities in Prince Edward Island are similar for people from Souris to Tignish.  The qualities of a safer community are the same for men, women, disabled, youth, gay or immigrant.  A safe community is one where people know their neighbours, respect themselves and each other, where everyone is valued and included in decisions and activities of the community.  There is an absence of alcohol and drug abuse, violence and fear.”

Strategies for Safer Communities in Prince Edward Island (1994)

We hope that this site will become a valuable resource to your family, friends, co-workers and community members whether you are a resident or a visitor.  We look forward to hearing your comments.
