On behalf of all citizens of the capital city of Prince Edward Island and my colleagues on City Council, I am pleased to welcome visitors from around the world to Charlottetown, the Birthplace of Confederation.
Charlottetown is a year round tourism destination with each season more beautiful than the one before. We are known for our many festivals, unique architecture, rich history and savory cuisine. We hope you will explore the many green spaces, scenic waterfront and historical landmarks in our walkable city.
Charlottetown is an award winning city, often recognized by national and international organizations. In 2015, Charlottetown was named as one of the Top 10 cities for economic development in Canada by Site Selection Magazine. Charlottetown’s sport tourism brand SCORE, was also named the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance Sport Organization of the Year. Charlottetown has been named 1 of 17 Canadian Cities to Visit in 2017 by Expedia.ca and 1 of 17 Best Places to Visit in 2017 by CNN.com.
We hope that you consider experiencing our city first hand or if you’re already here, enjoy all that we have to offer as we celebrate Canada 150.
