About Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island is a place rich in history, culture, creativity and scrumptious local food. Our people are authentically friendly and passionate with a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
Maybe it's because of the endless rolling hills and being surrounded by the ocean; people say it's so scenic and peaceful here that it feels like a storybook land. In fact, Anne of Green Gables, perhaps the Island’s best-known citizen, is a work of fiction. Thousands of visitors come here to see the place they've pictured in their minds and are thrilled to see that the shining waters, green pastures and bright coastline they've read about in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books aren't a fantasy.
Here, nature and modern life co-exist; albeit, it’s a fine balance. As a small island, our environment and ecosystems are fragile. Islanders recognize the importance of measures to mitigate and protect our environment so that crops flourish, shellfish thrive and visitors may continue to enjoy the beauty of this place.
There are three convenient ways to get to Prince Edward Island. Whether you drive across the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick, take a ferry ride from Nova Scotia, or fly into the Charlottetown airport, as long as you know how to drive in a round-about, you’ll find our Island easy to navigate.

Thinking about a move to PEI?
The coastal and pastoral beauty of this place draws people here but they choose to stay because of Prince Edward Island’s small town feel, non-existent rush hours, short drives to work, low crime rate and quality of education.
