Prince Edward Island, a Maritime province of East Canada, bounded on the North, East and West by the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and on the South by Northumberland Strait.
Prince Edward Island became part of the Canadian Confederation on July 1, 1873, as the seventh province. When the French explorer Jacques Cartier landed on the island in 1534, Micmac Indians lived there. England seized the island from France in 1758, and called it Saint John's Island. In 1799 the island was renamed for Edward Augustus, who was the son of King George III, of England. Farming is the main industry on Prince Edward Island. It is known as PEI or The Island.
