About Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest province in geographical size and population, and yet it has contributed to the nation’s cultural, economic, and political development in unique ways.

Recognized in federal statute as the Birthplace of Canadian Confederation, the Charlottetown Conference of 1864 laid the foundation for our present federation.

The Island has affectionately been called the “million acre farm” and the “garden of the Gulf”. It is a leading producer of agricultural and fisheries products, and has one of the most beautiful working rural landscapes in the world. Tourists flock to the province each year to enjoy Prince Edward Island’s white sand beaches and experience its distinctive heritage, charm, and cultural attractions.

Prince Edward Island has given Canada a number of outstanding artists and performers, including celebrated author Lucy Maud Montgomery, poet Milton Acorn, singer-songwriters Gene MacLellan, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Angele Arsenault, and Lennie Gallant, as well as fiddling sensation Richard Wood.
