A big reason for moving here was the PEI factor. My wife and I had a sense that it would be a great place to raise a family. When we moved here, our boys were five and seven. Part of the lure was the privilege of raising a family on PEI. This is great, safe and supportive community

Affordable, safe, culturally vibrant, and steeped in history — PEI has it all!

With some of the lowest housing costs in the country, the Prince Edward Island holds an excellent reputation for safety, and a friendly “know-your-neighbour” environment. On PEI you can live in an environment that offers great educational institutions, accessible health care, affordable housing, little traffic, low crime rates — and a place where you can make a difference. 

PEI is linked to New Brunswick by the Confederation Bridge, a 13-kilometre landmark that is quick and convenient. “The Bridge,” as it is affectionately known, is open 24 hours a day and takes 12 to 15 minutes to cross.

Large car ferries also link eastern PEI to Nova Scotia from early May to mid-December, a trip that takes about 70 minutes.
