The Business Hall of Fame was established by Junior Achievement of Prince Edward Island, to provide a forum to pay tribute to Island business people who have made an outstanding and enduring contribution to business development in the Province.

Inductees are selected for their vision, standards of excellence, determination, willingness to take risks, contribution to their community and to the prosperity of our Province.

Junior Achievement is an international non-profit organization dedicated to teaching young people the principles and dynamics of business and the free enterprise system.  On PEI some 4,800 students are enrolled in JA programs in schools across the Province.

The business leaders will be formally inducted into the PEI Business Hall of Fame on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at a Gala Dinner at the Delta Hotels by Marriot Prince Edward in Charlottetown.  Tickets for this event are available through Junior Achievement PEI.
