Prince Edward Island: A very small province with great potential

Do not close your eyes for too long or you might miss P.E.I. Of course we’re joking, but this tiny piece of land is Canada's smallest province. How small? It represents only 0.1 per cent of the country's total land area. Who was this Edward, you ask? Well, the island was named in honour of one of the sons of King George III, who was also the father of Queen Victoria.

The pleasure of travelling to Prince Edward Island grew on May 31,1997, when the island was connected to the mainland via the Confederation Bridge, a gigantic project measuring 12.9 kilometres (and 1.3 billion dollars). About 4,000 cars cross it daily.

Tourism is one of the spearheads of the province, with about 1.2 million people visiting each year — not bad for a province that is home to fewer than 150,000 people. Most residents are of Scottish, Irish and English descent, along with a handful of francophones. Agriculture alone exceeds tourism in terms of income — a third of the potatoes produced in the country come from this island.

When travelling to P.E.I., you must visit Charlottetown, its friendly capital. This city plays host to the annual Charlottetown Summer Festival, where you can appreciate local talent!
