Business Hall of Fame 2021

June 17, 2021
Charlottetown, PEI




JA 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 5,700 students are enrolled in JA programs in schools across the Province.

The Business Hall of Fame was established by JA 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. 

The details regarding our next event include:


On behalf of JA Prince Edward Island, we would like to provide an update in regards to the 2020 Business Hall of Fame.  In March, we made the decision to postpone our 2020 JA PEI Business Hall of Fame Gala until the fall due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We continue to find ourselves in a time of uncertainty in regards to how the next few months will prgress. Knowing that our local business community has been impacted and since our main concern continues to be for the health and safety of our community partners, students, volunteers, and staff; we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Business Hall of Fame Gala.


Our next Gala will be held on June 17th, 2021 where we will have the honour to induct our distinguished Laureates,

Liam Dolan, Peter MacDonald and Dan MacIsaac into the JA Prince Edward Island Business Hall of Fame.
