We saw this recent news for Prince Edward Island

The premier of Prince Edward Island was in Toronto this month, pitching Bay Street on his plan to use small businesses and tech-based sectors to grow the economy of Canada’s tiniest province.

Although PEI has posted some of the largest job and population growth in Canada during this global recession, it must diversify its economy so it won’t rely so heavily on three seasonal industries: agriculture, fishing and tourism, Premier Robert Ghiz told the Empire Club of Canada.

“You’re not going to be fishing for lobster or gathering mussels in February,” he said of the seasonal nature of PEI’s second-largest industry, its fisheries.

Ghiz laid out the cornerstones of his plan, which include starting or attracting businesses with one to 500 employees, and building up four technology-based sectors: aerospace, bioscience, IT back office support, and renewable energy.
