Prince Edward Island - the green province

Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest and greenest province. Cradled on the waves of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, PEI is known for the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape, surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and red sandstone cliffs.

Why choose Prince Edward Island?

PEI is known as the birthplace of Confederation. In 1864, the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Québec met in Charlottetown to form the new nation. It was a richly eventful time. You can relive the drama by visiting Province House and Founders' Hall, and by joining any number of tours. But archaeologists have found evidence of early Mi'kmaq settlement that dates thousands of years before the historic Charlottetown Conference.

As a visitor to PEI, you can do more than just witness the Island way of life. You can live it, too. Real experiences and simple pleasures; being active and relaxed at the same time. Any island is its own unique world with stories, music, recipes, and skills that are preserved and passed down for generations. But here you're welcome to take part, and take home some of PEI's traditions.

When touring Prince Edward Island, you'll see miles of lush rolling farmlands and coastlines dotted with fishing harbours, so it may not come as a surprise to discover that the food industry is the single most important contributor to PEI's economy. PEI is proud of its "clean and green" reputation world-wide and offers tourists a wonderful opportunity to "tour and taste" some of the best they have to offer. On an island where the primary industries are farming and fishing, fresh is the operative word when it comes to food experiences.

PEI's beaches quite literally provide am amazing experience. From building sandcastles, relaxing, taking sunset walks or enjoying a picnic, the beaches here are magnificent.

Its irregular shape and many bays and inlets, Prince Edward Island has a long coastline. It has communities with unique flavour, and secret treasures tucked away and quietly awaiting discovery.

There is much to see and do and a rich history to discover.
