Prince Edward Island (PEI or P.E.I.; French: le-duPrince-douard) is a province of Canada consisting of the
island of the same name, as well as several much smaller
It is one of the three Maritime Provinces and is the smallest province in both land area and population. It is the
only province of Canada to have no land boundary. The
island has several informal names: Garden of the Gulf,
referring to the pastoral scenery and lush agricultural
lands throughout the province; and Birthplace of Confederation or Cradle of Confederation,[4] referring to
the Charlottetown Conference in 1864, although PEI did
not join Confederation until 1873, when it became the
seventh Canadian province. The backbone of the economy is farming, as it produces 25% of Canadas potatoes. Historically, PEI is one of Canadas older settlements and demographically still reects older immigration to the country, with Celtic, Anglo Saxon and French
last names being overwhelmingly dominant to this day.

The island is named for Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and

Strathearn (17671820), the fourth son of King George
III and the father of Queen Victoria. Prince Edward has
been called Father of the Canadian Crown.[6] The following island landmarks are also named after the Duke
of Kent:

Water supply



The climate of the island is considered to be moderate

and strongly inuenced by the surrounding seas.[8][9] As
such, it is milder than inland locations owing to the warm
waters from the Gulf of St. Lawrence.[10] The climate is
characterized by changeable weather throughout the year;
it has some of the most variable day to day weather in
Canada in which specic weather conditions seldom last
for long.[9]
During July and August, the average daytime high in PEI
is 23 C (73 F); however, the temperature can sometimes
exceed 30 C (86 F) during these months. In the winter months of January and February, the average daytime
high is 3.3 C (26 F). The Island receives an average
yearly rainfall of 855 mm and an average yearly snowfall
of 285 cm.
Winters are moderately cold and long but are milder
than inland locations, with clashes of cold Arctic
air and milder Atlantic air causing frequent temperature swings.[9] The climate is considered to be more
continental than oceanic since the Gulf of St. Lawrence
freezes over, thus eliminating any moderation.[9] The
mean temperature is 7 C (19 F) in January.[10] During the winter months, the island usually has many storms
(which may produce rain as well as snow) and blizzards
since during this time, storms originating from the North
Pacic or the Gulf of Mexico frequently pass through.[9]
Springtime temperatures typically remain cool until the
sea ice has melted, usually in late April or early May.
Summers are moderately warm, but rarely uncomfortable, with the daily maximum temperature only occasionally reaching as high as 30 C (86 F). Autumn is a pleasant season, as the moderating Gulf waters delay the onset
of frost, although storm activity increases compared to
the summer. There is ample precipitation throughout the
year, although it is heaviest in the late autumn, early winter and mid spring.

Although commercial deposits of minerals have not been
found, exploration in the 1940s for natural gas beneath
the northeastern end of the province resulted in the discovery of an undisclosed quantity of gas.[15] The Island was reported by government to have only 0.08tcf
of technically recoverable natural gas. Twenty exploration wells for hydrocarbon resources have been drilled
on Prince Edward Island and oshore. The rst reported
well was Hillsborough No.#1, drilled in Charlottetown
Harbour in 1944 (the worlds rst oshore well), and the
most recent was New Harmony No.#1 in 2007. Since
the resurgence of exploration in the mid-1990s, all wells
that have shown promising gas deposits have been stimulated through hydraulic fracture or fracking. All oil
and natural gas exploration and exploitation activities on
the Island are governed by the Oil and Natural Gas Act
R.S.P.E.I. 1988, Cap. 0-5 and its associated regulations
and orders.[16]

2.3 Water supply

The Province of Prince Edward Island is totally dependent on groundwater for its source of drinking water.
As groundwater ows through an aquifer it is naturally
ltered. The water for City of Charlottetown is extracted from thirteen wells in three wellelds and distributed to customers. The water removed is replenished
by precipitation.[17]

Infrastructure in Charlottetown that was installed in 1888

is still in existence. With the age of the system in the older
part of Charlottetown, concern has been raised regarding
lead pipes. The Utility has been working with its residents
on a lead replacement program. A plebiscite in 1967
was held in Charlottetown over uoridation, and residents
voted in favour. Under provincial legislation, the Utility
is required to report to its residents on an annual basis. It
is also required to do regular sampling of the water and an
overview is included in each annual report.[17] The Winter

3.1.1 Battle at Port-la-Joye (1745)

After the Siege of Louisbourg (1745) during the War of

the Austrian Succession, the New Englanders also captured le Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island). An English
detachment landed at Port-la-Joye. Under the command
of Joseph de Pont Duvivier, the French had a garrison
of 20 French troops at Port-la-Joye.[27] The troops ed

York River.[32] Montesson and his troops killed forty New
Englanders and captured the rest. Montesson was commended for having distinguished himself in his rst independent command.[33]

Expulsion of the Acadians

Roughly one thousand Acadians lived on the island, many

of whom had ed to the island from mainland Nova Scotia
during the rst wave of the British-ordered expulsion in
1755, reaching a population of 5,000.[34] However, many
more were forcibly deported during the second wave of
the expulsion after the Siege of Louisbourg (1758).[35]
In the Ile Saint-Jean Campaign (1758) General Jeery
Amherst ordered Colonel Andrew Rollo to capture the
island. Many Acadians died in the expulsion en route to
France; on December 13, 1758, the transport ship Duke
William sank and 364 died. A day earlier the Violet sank
and 280 died; several days later the Ruby sank with 213

anger. The land had been given to the absentee landlords
with a number of conditions attached regarding upkeep
and settlement terms; many of these conditions were not
satised. Islanders spent decades trying to convince the
Crown to conscate the lots, however the descendants of
the original owners were generally well connected to the
British government and refused to give up the land.
In 1853, the Island government passed the Land Purchase
Act which empowered them to purchase lands from those
owners who were willing to sell, and then resell the land
to settlers for low prices. This scheme collapsed when the
Island ran short of money to continue with the purchases.
Many of these lands also were fertile, and were some of
the key factors to sustaining Prince Edward Islands economy.

3.2.2 Raid on Charlottetown (1775)

During the American Revolutionary War Charlottetown
was raided in 1775 by a pair of American-employed
privateers.[38] Two armed schooners, Franklin and Hancock, from Beverly, Massachusetts, made prisoner of the
attorney-general at Charlottetown, on advice given them
by some Pictou residents after they had taken eight shing
vessels in the Gut of Canso.[39]

1500s - 1700s



In September 1864, Prince Edward Island hosted the

Charlottetown Conference, which was the rst meeting
in the process leading to the Quebec Resolutions and the
creation of Canada in 1867. Prince Edward Island did
not nd the terms of union favourable and balked at joining in 1867, choosing to remain a colony of the United
Kingdom. In the late 1860s, the colony examined various
options, including the possibility of becoming a discrete
dominion unto itself, as well as entertaining delegations
from the United States, who were interested in Prince Edward Island joining the United States of America.

province is limited in terms of heavy industry and manufacturing, though the McCains food conglomerate runs
expansion operations from PEI.
Agriculture remains the dominant industry in the provincial economy, as it has since colonial times. The Island
has a total land area of 1.4 million acres with approximately 594,000 acres cleared for agricultural use.[53] In
2006, the Census of Agriculture counted 1700 farms on
the Island.[54] During the 20th century, potatoes replaced
mixed farming as the leading cash crop, accounting for
one-third of provincial farm income. The number of
acres under potato production in 2010 was 88,000,[21]
while soy accounted for 55,000.[55] There are approximately 330 potato growers on PEI, with the grand majority of these being family farms, often with multiple generations working together.[21] The province currently accounts for a third of Canadas total potato production, producing approximately 1.3 billion kilograms
annually.[21] Comparatively, the state of Idaho produces
approximately 6.2 billion kilograms annually, with a population approximately 9.5 times greater.[56] The province
is a major producer of seed potatoes, exporting to more
than twenty countries around the world.[21] An estimated
total of 70% of the land is cultivated and 25% of all potatoes grown in Canada originate from P.E.I.[57] The processing of frozen fried potatoes, green vegetables, and
berries is a leading business activity.[58]
As a legacy of the islands colonial history, the provincial government enforces extremely strict rules for nonresident land ownership, especially since the PEI Lands
Protection Act of 1982.[59] Residents and corporations are
limited to maximum holdings of 400 and 1,200 hectares
respectively. There are also restrictions on non-resident
ownership of shorelines.[59]

The islands economy has grown signicantly over the

last decade in key areas of innovation. Aerospace, Bioscience, ICT and Renewable energy have been a focus
for growth and diversication. Aerospace alone now accounts for over 25% of the provinces international exports and is the islands fourth largest industry at $355
million in annual sales.
Many of the provinces coastal communities rely upon
shellsh harvesting, particularly lobster shing[60] as well
as oyster shing and mussel farming.
The sale of carbonated beverages such as beer and soft
drinks in non-rellable containers, such as aluminum cans
or plastic bottles, was banned in 1976 as an environmental measure in response to public concerns over litter.
Beer and soft drink companies opted to use rellable glass
bottles for their products which were redeemable at stores
and bottle depots.

has set renewable energy targets as high as 30-50% for
electricity consumed by 2015. Until wind generation,
the province relied entirely on electricity imports on a
submarine cable from New Brunswick. A thermal oilred generating station in Charlottetown is also available.
Electricity rates in the province were in 2011 the highest in Canada, at a domestic rate of 0.161 $/kWh. The
province imports about 85 per cent of its power through
New Brunswick. The maintenance shutdown of Point
Lepreau nuclear plant forced the province to acquire most
of its electrons on the expensive open market. The result
was a steep price hikes of about 25 per cent in the three
years to 2011 but the province later subsidised rates.[67]
Residents were to pay 11.2 per cent more for electricity when the harmonized sales tax was adopted in April
2013, according to the P.E.I. Energy Accord that was
tabled in the legislature on 7 December 2012.[68] and
passed as the Electric Power (Energy Accord Continuation) Amendment Act, which establishes electric pricing
from 1 April 2013 to 1 March 2016. Regulatory powers are derived for IRAC from the Electric Power Act.[69]
Since 1918 Maritime Electric has delivered electricity to
customers on the Island. The utility is currently owned
and operated by Fortis Inc.[70]

who is usually the current leader of the political party that
can obtain the condence of a plurality in the Legislative
Assembly. The leader of the party with the second-most

Each of the 27 Members of the Legislative Assembly
(MLA) is elected by simple plurality in an electoral district. General elections are called by the lieutenant governor on the rst Monday in October four years after the
previous election, or may be called, on the advice of the
premier, should the government lose a condence vote in
the legislature.[76] Traditionally, politics in the province
have been dominated by both the Liberal Party and the Cardigan River, one of The Three Rivers

School Board,[78] as well as a Francophone district, the of Charlottetown have beneted from a central sanitary



sewer service. Early disposal practices, while advanced

for their time, eventually were found to compromise the
ecological integrity of the nearby Hillsborough River and
the Charlottetown Harbour. By 1974, the Commission
had spearheaded the development of a primary wastewater treatment plant, known as the Charlottetown Pollution
Control Plant, together with the construction of several
pumping stations along the Citys waterfront, and outfall
piping deep into the Hillsborough River.[82]
There are eight hospitals in the province.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Charlottetown)

Kings County Memorial Hospital (Montague)

Community Hospital (O'Leary)
Souris Hospital (Souris)
Western Hospital (Alberton)

Ground ambulance service in Prince Edward Island is

Some specialist services require patients to be referred to

clinics and specialists in neighbouring provinces. Specialist operations and treatments are also provided at larger
tertiary referral hospitals in neighbouring provinces such
as the IWK Health Centre and Queen Elizabeth II Health
Sciences Centre in Nova Scotia or the Saint John Regional Hospital, Moncton Hospital, and Dr. Georges-L.Dumont University Hospital Centre in New Brunswick.


Prince Edward Island oers programs and services in areas such as acute care, primary care, home care, palliative care, public health, chronic disease prevention,
and mental health and addictions, to name a few. The
provincial government has opened several family health
centres in recent years in various rural and urban communities. A provincial cancer treatment centre at the
Queen Elizabeth Hospital provides support to those dealing with various types of cancer-related illnesses. A family medicine residency program was established in 2009
with the Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine as a
means to encourage new physicians to work in Prince Edward Island.

Prince Edward Island is the only province in Canada

that does not provide abortion services through its hospitals. The last abortion was performed in the province
in 1982 prior to the opening of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital which saw the closure of the Roman
Catholic-aliated Charlottetown Hospital and the nondenominational Prince Edward Island Hospital; a condition of the merger being that abortions not be performed in the province. In 1988, following the court decision R. v. Morgentaler, the then-opposition Progressive
Conservative Party of Prince Edward Island tabled a motion demanding that the ban on abortions be upheld at
the provinces hospitals; the then-governing Prince Edward Island Liberal Party under Premier Joe Ghiz acquiesced and the ban was upheld.[84] The Government
of Prince Edward Island will fund abortions for women
who travel to another province. Women from Prince Edward Island may also travel to the nearest private userpay, Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton, New Brunswick,
where they must pay for the procedure using their own
funds.[85][86][87][88][89] (See also abortion in Canada)

Long-term-care services are also available with several

programs in place to support seniors wishing to remain
independent in their communities. Many medications for
seniors are subsidized through a provincial pharmaceutical plan, however, Prince Edward Island remains one of 10 Culture and sports

10.2 Sports
Water sports are very popular on Prince Edward Island during the summer, perhaps because the Gulf
of St. Lawrence and the Northumberland Strait are
warmer than the Atlantic Ocean o the shores of
nearby New England.

Winter Games.
In 2009, Prince Edward Island hosted the Canada
