PEI’S SECRET

STUDENTS LOVE THIS PLACE Smallest of Canada’s 10 provinces—both in population and geographical area

The Mi’kmaq were PEI’s original inhabitants— they called it Epekwitk, or Abegweit, meaning “cradled on the waves”

280 kilometres long, from tip to tip

Population: Prince Edward Island–153,244 Charlottetown–over 36,000

Charlottetown is the “Birthplace of Confederation”

PEI’s largest industry is agriculture followed by tourism and fishing

Over 800 kilometres of beaches

Wind power generates as much as 25% of electricity used on PEI

PEI’s famous red soil gets its colour from a high iron content, which oxidizes when exposed to the air

The Confederation Bridge joins New Brunswick and PEI. The 12.9-kilometre-long bridge takes 12 minutes to cross, and is the world’s longest bridge over ice-covered water

Ferries connect travellers between Caribou, Nova Scotia, and Wood Islands, PEI for eight months of the year

Developed from old railway beds, the Confederation Trail stretches 273 kilometres across the Island. It’s open to hikers, cyclists, runners, and snowmobilers! The Charlottetown Airport offers flights from several airlines to locations near and far

The world-famous book Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908, was written by PEI native Lucy Maud Montgomery

“In my fourth year at UPEI, I chose to take part in a semester abroad in Dublin, Ireland. I truly believe this was one of the best decisions of my undergrad. People told me I would have fun, meet new people, and see exciting things, but my experience abroad was much more than that. My time away gave me a deeper understanding of myself and the world around me.” —Jeff Moore BBA, 2018
