2019-2020 Provincial Budget: Mixed Reaction at Collège de l'Île
Wellington, June 26, 2019 - The new Prince Edward Island government’s budget provides Collège de l’Île with a net increase of $5,800 in its operating funding.
The provincial government calculated this 2% increase on only part of the Collège’s funding, the share from the provincial government. In comparison, the consumer price index increased 2.3%, as the Minister of Finance indicated in her budget paper on the economy. This $5,800 is equivalent to the tuition fees paid by one student in the Licensed Practical Nursing program at Collège de l’Île for a single academic year.

Café de Paris now offered in five PEI healthcare facilities
Wellington, January 14, 2019 – Healthcare professionals in Prince Edward Island now have new opportunities to hone their French language skills at five healthcare facilities in the province.
Café de Paris is a voluntary drop-in language support service offered on location at Maplewood Manor, Community Hospital O’Leary, Prince County Hospital, Beach Grove Home and Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Staff at these facilities can make an appointment with a tutor to review specific language questions or to simply drop in to engage in conversation to help develop, or maintain, their French language speaking skills.

“This drop-in model was successfully piloted last year in three locations,” said Élise Arsenault, Executive Director of the PEI French Language Health Network. “We are pleased to expand on this initial offering through our partnership with the PEI Public Service Commission and Collège de l’Île, PEI’s French language community college.”
