The P.E.I. Senior Citizens' Federation is a provincial-wide nonprofit charitable organization consisting of over 50 seniors' clubs, groups, and organizations.
Our mandate is to act as a voice for Island seniors and advocate for a better quality of life on their behalf.
Through our member clubs and local community organizations, we deliver programs and distribute information to Island seniors (adults 50+) Island wide (both members and nonmembers).
Our objectives are:
To link member clubs across PEI and provide a vehicle for a stronger voice.
To consult with government and other decision makers about seniors’ concerns and to advocate on their behalf.
To co-ordinate and organize workshops and seminars that meet seniors’ social and educational needs.
To increase understanding of the aging process.
To encourage seniors to participate in decisions which affect their lives.
To act as a resource and to disseminate information for the benefit of all seniors.
To collaborate with other seniors’ organizations.
To co-operate with other agencies and organizations and all others who can contribute to the above objectives.
The Voice For Island Seniors is the monthly publication of the PEI Senior Citizens' Federation.
It is published the first Wednesday of each month in partnership with the Guardian newspaper and distributed in the Guardian, as well as online and at a variety of news stands across the Island.
The PEI Senior Citizens' Federation meetings are held in May (Annual General Meeting) and October (General Meeting).
Our Annual General Meeting is held in Charlottetown and our General Meeting alternates between Kings and Prince Counties.

Re: Announcement regarding COVID-19
The Board of Directors of the PEI Senior Citizens’ Federation is strongly recommending that due to the COVID-19 virus our member clubs and associate organizations refrain from holding in person meetings and activities indefinitely.
Our Annual General Meeting that was scheduled to take place in Charlottetown on Thursday, May 21st has been postponed until Thursday, October 15th at a location to be determined.
We anticipate the Royalty Centre where our office is located will soon be closed to the public, at which time our Executive Director, Linda Jean Nicholson, and Voice and Office Assistant, Barbara Young, will be working from home. Linda Jean can be contacted through email at email@example.com or by leaving a message on the office phone at 902-368-9008.
We encourage clubs (who have not already done so) to create a phone tree and keep in regular contact with their members and other community seniors to minimize the isolation of the current situation. This is especially important for seniors who live alone and do not have family members nearby.
For questions concerning the COVID-19 virus call 1-800-958-6400 or if you are experiencing symptoms, call 811 to be screened and for further direction. Please be patient, as there may be a waiting time.
Please stay safe by practicing social distancing, washing your hands regularly, and keeping your hands away from your face.
