And not just for clients of the Native Council of P.E.I, where Clay works as the co-ordinator of the Reaching Home project. "Anyone who's struggling or homeless at the moment, we supply them." Weeks ago, there were more than 20 people living in an encampment on t

Health P.E.I. says more options are coming for Islanders who don't have a family doctor or nurse practitioner, and want to access health care. Currently, just over 25,000 people are on P.E.I.'s patient registry — and they are advised to use walk-in clinics, or use Maple — an online health-care service, available for free to those without a primary health-care provider. But Andrew MacDougall, executive director of community health and seniors care with Health P.E.I., said work is underway to expa
