Charlottetown | Info

It was famously the site of the Charlottetown Conference in 1864, the first gathering of Canadian and Maritime statesmen to debate the proposed Maritime Union and the more persuasive British North American Union, now known as Canadian Confederation . From this, the city adopted as its motto Cunabula Foederis —"Birthplace of Confederation".

Charlottetown, the Birthplace of Confederation and Prince Edward Island’s capital city, strikes a perfect balance with its small town charm, big energy and island vibes. Its romantic streetscapes, stunning water vistas and array of welcoming accommodations create an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of larger centres.
