The Tourism Industry Association of PEI has launched a competition to encourage islanders to get vaccinated.

Prince Edward Island has moved some dates for the reopening of the border without requiring self-isolation, for those whose travel is pre-approved from June 23 and for Canadians from outside the Atlantic Canada July 28.

Visitors will need to apply for a PEI pass, showing proof of vaccination and residency. Apps opened Thursday – and things got busy.

“As expected, there has been a lot of excitement around the PEI Pass. Many people are actively requesting and there have been intermittent accidents, ”said a provincial government spokesperson.
