Island Way of Life as it is experienced today has deep
roots in our provinces history and the Island
landscape. These preserved symbols vary from the
40-kilometre strip of shoreline that is the Prince Edward
Island National Park to heritage buildings, museums, and
monuments. Landscapes, architecture, industries, rural
life, accomplished Islanders... all are a vital part of
our heritage and the Island Way of Life.
