Charlottetown is home to the Atlantic Veterinary College, the only institution in Atlantic Canada educating doctors of veterinary medicine. More than 1,400 graduates now work in private practice, academia, research, government, and industry worldwide. 

Charlottetown has preserved the historic significance of its past as the birthplace of Confederation while attracting topnotch theatre productions, gourmet eateries, local breweries, and a multitude of festivals and events. Victoria Row, a pedestrian street lined with restaurant patios and boutique shops, is frequented by locals and visitors alike. The charming seaside boardwalk (near the Delta Prince Edward Hotel) is perfect for a relaxing walk or stroll.

PEI is home to world-class golf courses, cultural and historic venues, artists, craftspeople and musicians, exceptional cuisine featuring seafood (and much more than the humble potato), experiential and outdoor activities, Anne of Green Gables, exquisite beaches, and breathtaking scenery! While visiting the Island, you are never far from the ocean. In fact, no part of the island is more than 16 km away from the sea.

The Island has become a food haven known for its many food-oriented festivals. In 2016, celebrity chef Michael Smith and his wife Chazz Smith re-opened the first 5-star property on the Island, the Inn at Bay Fortune. The Inn offers a unique “Farm to Fork” experience sharing every single ingredient grown, produced, farmed or foraged locally. No one knows the Island better than the people who live there and explore it every day.
