Strategic SectorsAs the lead economic development agency in Prince Edward Island, Innovation PEI works with local businesses to create jobs and grow our economy.
Prince Edward Island is developing a solid reputation as the location of choice for many leading international companies. Regardless of sector, we have a variety of financial supports and services to support the Island's economic growth.
Since the early 1990's, the province's economy has undergone considerable growth particularly in high knowledge sectors such as:
- Aerospace and defence,
- Bioscience, and
- Information communications technology.
As these sectors have grown, our need for primary industries has faded. There is little to suggest these trends will not continue.
Along with these trends and our province's economic strategy, we are focusing on five main growth sectors:
Other sectors are also creating social and economic growth to Prince Edward Island. Those sectors include:
- Advanced Manufacturing and Processing including value-added food development and production
- Financial Services
- Small Business
