Jobs from WorkPEI


Our newsletter delivers all of the latest news from our organization and our sector.

What is our vision?

Flourishing arts, culture and creative industries are essential to the ongoing prosperity and quality of life of Prince Edward Island.


In today’s competitive global labour marketplace, talented people seek out a vibrant arts scene and a creative community where bold new ideas and excellence are celebrated.


Arts, culture and creative industries contribute $123.2 million directly to PEI’s economy. They also contribute millions more indirectly as drivers of tourism and provincial branding.


A more creative society infused with optimism is empowered to find solutions to its biggest challenges in areas like education, healthcare and the environment.

What do we do?


We partner with a wide range of sector organizations and funders to create and deliver skills development programs in three broad areas: professional skills, entrepreneurship and creativity.

See Our Programs


We research labour market and business issues in the creative sector. We also gather research from other sources and make it available here on our website.

See The Reports


We are constantly developing new initiatives to promote collaboration within the creative sector, with other industry sectors and with the wider PEI community.
