Our capital invites you to visit and become part of the culture and heritage of our province.

Charlottetown is the capital of Prince Edward Island and the “Birthplace of Canada”. It was here that the Fathers of Confederation held their first meeting, a meeting that led to the decision to begin to create our country, Canada. Against such a historical background, Charlottetown offers a heritage district featuring historic buildings and sites.

Charlottetown has a vibrant cultural environment showcasing museums, galleries, artisans, craftspeople, musicians, and great theatre. No visit to PEI is complete without time spent in Charlottetown, and if you’re flying to PEI, this is where you’ll arrive.
