  • Expand community-based cancer treatment in Kings County and West Prince - Improved local access to treatment will help reduce travel, financial and emotional burdens for Islanders living with cancer.
     
  • Create a new Wellness and Activity Tax Credit - An important part of good physical and mental health is directly tied to physical activity. A new $500 Wellness and Activity Tax Credit will help Islanders become more physically active and healthy by helping lower the barriers to good health.
