In September 2020, Canada’s Food Island launched a new local gift card program to drive revenue to PEI’s hardest hit local businesses.

The gift card program is a two-year initiative that allows Islanders and visitors to purchase gift cards that they can use at local accommodations, restaurants, and businesses. In addition to restaurants and accommodations, the gift cards are also redeemable at participating local retail shops, golf courses, tour operators, and otherIsland attractions. Currently, there are 176 locations Island-wide signed up to be Canada’s Food Island Gift Card Program Merchants and gift cards are being sold at 24 retail locations.

The campaign is currently running and includes media relations, video and photography production, a new website, content creation, social media management, stakeholder relations and engagement, influencer marketing, and a digital campaign using display ads on Facebook and Instagram.
