Prince Edward Island

New funding programs announced for those affected by US potato ban

Members of the potato and trucking industries affected by the restrictions on Prince Edward Island potatoes entering the US are being offered financial aid through two new provincial funding programs.

The potato financing program will provide working or capital loans with a four percent fixed interest rate each year. The province also announced a wage support for potato exporters, which will help the Island potato industry and the trucking companies impacted. The program will provide wage reimbursements to employers to maintain their staff during the restrictions.
