Prince Edward Island Cavendish Red CliffsPrince Edward Island (PE) is a maritime province and is the smallest in Canada in both land area and population (excluding the territories). The island has a few other names: "Garden of the Gulf"; and "Birthplace of Confederation". Prince Edward Island joined the confederation in 1873 and became the seventh Canadian province.

Prince Edward Island is located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence west of Cape Breton Island, north of the Nova Scotia peninsula, and east of New Brunswick. Its southern shore bounds the Northumberland Strait.  The island's landscape is pastoral. Rolling hills, woods, reddish white sand beaches, ocean coves and the
famous red soil have given Prince Edward Island a reputation as a province of outstanding natural beauty.
The island's largest urban area surrounds Charlottetown Harbour, centrally located on the southern shore, and also where you would find the capital city of  Charlottetown.
The provincial economy is dominated by the seasonal industries of agriculture, tourism, and the fishery. Agriculture is the dominant industry. Potatoes account for one-third of provincial farm income.  Many of the coastal communities rely upon shellfish harvesting, particularly lobster fishing as well as oyster fishing and mussel farming.
