The PEI Council of People with Disabilities has relocated their main Charlottetown branch to Landmark Plaza. The Council had formerly occupied a third floor office at the Confederation Court Mall. It was necessary for them to relocate in order to provide uninterrupted provision of their services, as Homburg continues the redevelopment of the Confederation Court Mall and construction of their new hotel development. The not-for-profit organization supporting persons with disabilities now has ground floor access to a professionally designed and developed space in Landmark Plaza at 5 Lower Malpeque Road.

The Council provides services to individuals with disabilities in housing, education, accessibility, employment, transportation, human rights and accessing additional support programs. On May 20th Executive Director Marcia Carroll invited the general public and partners to celebrate the opening of their new facility. Council President Anne McPhee and other Board members were on hand for the celebrations and thanked the Honourble Doug Currie, Minister of Social Services and Seniors, Shawn Murphy, Member of Parliament for Charlottetown, and City of Charlottetown Councillors Danny Redmond and Mitchell Tweel for their support and assistance. Ms. Carroll invited Minister Currie to share a few words and he spoke extremely highly of the organization’s work, their staff and contribution to people with disabilities and all Islanders alike.

The building is part of the APM development situated in Charlottetown’s regional services area that also includes APM Place. In close proximity to the Royalty Power Centre, Charlottetown Mall and West Royalty Industrial Park as well as the growing communities of West Royalty and Cornwall, the development provides ease of access to tenants, clients and customers with significant parking and views of Ellen’s Creek to the properties rear. APM Place and Landmark Plaza are in close proximity to the intersection of Lower Malpeque Road and Capital Drive, the former Trans-Canada Highway.

The PEI Council of People with Disabilities joins Farm Credit Canada and Benjamin Moore’s House of Excellence as occupants in Landmark Plaza and brings the building to full occupancy.
