PEI Heritage Logo

Here in the Birthplace of Canada, heritage is a way of life for Islanders. It’s the background of our existence – from the oral histories passed down from generation to generation to the names rich in history given to our contemporary streets, towns, and structures.

Heritage is alive and vibrant, and to help identify specific heritage experiences available on PEI, we’ve designated three categories:

To discover architecture and buildings visit our Built Heritage section;

For ethnic heritage, hands on experiences, cultural festivals and industrial heritage visit Human Heritage;

and in Natural Heritage you’ll find coastal and pastoral vistas and ecologically important places.
