Hi Roger,

On June 19, 2019 Statistics Canada published its provincial population estimates for the first quarter of 2019. The data shows that Prince Edward Island's population is estimated to be 155,318 as of April 1, 2019.

PEI is 5,683.91 square kilometres (2,194.57 sq mi) and our highest elevation is 152 metres (499 ft).

Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest and 10th most populated province.

It takes about 3 hours (280 kilometres) to drive from East Point to North Cape (tip to tip) if not many stops are done.
