Membership Benefits

The Federation of Prince Edward Island Municipalities:

  • submits briefs to the provincial and federal government, and FPEIM representatives meet with government officials to address municipal issues.
     
  • advocates changes in provincial legislation to assist and strengthen municipalities and monitors proposed legislation which could have implications for municipalities.
     
  • responds to numerous requests from member municipalities.
     
  • works with other parties to provide information sessions and professional development opportunities for municipal officials.
     
  •  publishes a newsletter (Municipal Forum).
     
  •  hosts two membership meetings each year - the annual meeting in April and the semi-annual meeting in October.
     
  •  provides members with the opportunity to benefit from discounted furnace oil rates.
     
  •  represents the interest of Island municipalities at the national level. The FPEIM president sits on the Board of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).

The municipal order of government is closest to the people and enables citizens to have a say in local administration, planning and development. Although many Island municipalities are small, the problems and challenges facing them are demanding and becoming more complex, as land use planning, environmental issues, financial matters, and the legal implications of decisions become more serious concerns.

Because we are all affected by each others' decisions and the decisions of the Provincial and Federal governments, it is important that we work together to address the challenges facing municipalities through a strong, united Federation. As a member, the voice of your municipality can positively impact government policies, legislation, and programs. The membership fee, which finances FPEIM's operations, is a worthwhile investment.
