GEDI Funding Announced

The Rural Municipality of Mount Stewart is pleased to announce that we are one of the recipients of the Provincial GEDI Grants! We are in great company and one of only two municipalities to receive funding.

With this grant, we will be able to host four additional free seniors dinners here in the village in 2024, featuring diverse cuisines from Island-owned restaurants and caterers. Seniors from the village and surrounding areas are welcome to try cuisines that may be new to them, learn a bit about the heritages of the Islanders behind each supper, and spend time with their friends and neighbours.

Thank you to the Gender, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (GEDI) & Community Enhancement Program through the Department of Workforce, Advanced Learning and Population for this exciting opportunity. We look forward to hosting these suppers, working with the Lady Slipper Senior’s Club, and bringing our area’s seniors together for food and learning.
