About Us

Who we are

Concerned Citizens of Prince Edward County is a not-for-profit Ontario corporation.  It is a membership organization made up of civic-minded individuals who wish to work cooperatively with County Council to preserve the quality of life in The County and to ensure that local government is affordable.

Here is information about our Board Of Directors.

What we do

Our major focus is on County Projects -- projects that are initiated by Council, or by a private party but requiring the approval of Council.  Our goal is to be helpful to County government and the citizens of Prince Edward County.  We want to be recognized as a source of:

  • Credible information on both sides of a particular issue;
  • Objective analysis to assist in developing an informed opinion; and
  • Ideas and alternatives to help achieve the best possible outcome.

On a given project, we may remain neutral, or we may take an advocacy position.

Why we exist

Two important reasons.  First, the individual citizen has little opportunity to make his/her voice heard by local government.  By grouping together with other like-minded citizens we can increase our credibility with, and influence on, local government.

Second, unlike the situation in provincial and federal government, there is no opposition party to hold local government accountable for its actions between elections.  We don't view ourselves as "the opposition", but we can ask the tough questions that opposition parties do.

When and where we meet

We have scheduled meetings in the spring (our AGM) and fall and additionally when there is an issue or topic that neeeds airing.  Check News & Events for details.

We need you

In order to have credibility and influence, we need to have a large and motivated membership representing all areas of The County.  We welcome new Members and encourage you to come out to our meetings and perhaps paticipate in one of our projects.  But if you just want to keep in touch with what's going on, that's fine with us.

We draw on the expertise gained by our members in their working lives and the enthusiasm that people have for The County and its lifestyle.  If you have particular expertise or interests and are willing to contribute to our work, please contact one of our Board Members.

We invite you to browse the website.  If you have questions, comments or suggestions, send us an email at admin.ccpec@mailunite.com .
