FPEIM is pleased to introduce its 2023-2027 board of directors, who will hold their first meeting on Thursday, May 18.
Councillor Bruce MacDougall, from the City of Summerside, will continue as president. He offers a wealth of experience, having served as president since 2007 and board member since 2001. He also brings his insights from more than 30 years as a municipal councillor.
The 2023-2027 board includes leaders from cities, towns, and rural municipalities across the province:
- Councillor Elaine Barnes, Town of Cornwall
- Mayor JoAnne Dunphy, Town of Souris
- Councillor David Hughes, Rural Municipality of Miscouche
- Deputy Mayor Alanna Jankov, City of Charlottetown

“Thank you to our board members, past and present, who dedicate their time and talents to directing our work,” says MacDougall. “Their advice and knowledge are essential to supporting and advocating for PEI municipalities.”
Board members serve for a four-year term, which began at the annual general meeting. A by-election will be held for four vacant board seats: one for Prince County rural municipalities, one for Queens County cities/towns or rural municipalities, and two for Kings County rural municipalities.
FPEIM represents PEI municipalities as a strong and unified voice, and it fosters effective, efficient, and accountable municipal government. The Federation’s membership consists of 43 of the Island’s 58 municipalities.
