Partnering with PEI National Park
By working in collaboration with respected organizations that share our values, Parks Canada is able to better deliver its promise to Canadians by continuing to be a world leader in the protection and presentation of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. We believe in sharing leadership and working with our partners to offer unique, inspiring opportunities for Canadians to discover our treasured places and to achieve extraordinary results.
We are proud to be formally collaborating with the following local partners:
University of Prince Edward Island
Located on 140 acres in Charlottetown, the birthplace of Confederation, the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) has a rich history with roots in two founding institutions, Prince of Wales College (est. 1834) and St. Dunstan’s University (est. 1855). UPEI honours this proud legacy through a growing reputation for research innovation and academic excellence.
UPEI’s four faculties (arts, education, science, and veterinary medicine) and two schools (business and nursing) offer a wide range of programs and degrees to approximately 4,400 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, from over 60 countries. Home to multiple Canada Research Chairs, a Canada Excellence Research Chair in Aquatic Epidemiology, endowed or sponsored research chairs, and 3M National Teaching Fellows, UPEI offers its students a tightly-knit community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni that takes pride in supporting their success.
PEI 2014 aims to create an unforgettable 150th anniversary year that will celebrate and commemorate the historic Charlottetown Conference of 1864 and Prince Edward Island’s role in the formation of Canada. More than a celebration, 2014 events will remind us that PEI is where great ideas are born and Canadians from coast to coast to coast are invited to collaborate and participate. PEI 2014's activities will also provide the stimulus for the national Sesquicentennial of Canadian Confederation in 2017.
PEI 2014 Inc. is a not-for-profit organization whose principal role is to lead the planning and execution of the 2014 program, acting as a catalyst for the celebrations. Broadly stated, PEI 2014 will honour the past, celebrate the present and plan a bold tomorrow.
PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada
The PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada (PEI ANC) was incorporated in 1993 as a non-profit charitable organization. Our mandate is to provide short-term settlement services to new immigrants in the province of Prince Edward Island, and to bring people and communities together through long-term inclusion and community integration programs.
News! Check out this video from our recent Learn To Camp weekend. Thank you to the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada for the video and for such a fun camping weekend.
Encouraging and supporting Islanders in making physical activity and healthy eating a daily priority is what go! PEI is all about. With many partners we offer programs, education and events that help spread the healthy living message.
