The province includes the main PEI island by the same name, as well as, 231 smaller islands.

Capital City of PEI

PEI is Canada's 23rd largest island. The provincial capital is the City of Charlottetown. In 1864 PEI hosted the Charlottetown Conference to discuss confederation and the formation of Canada (1867). Since that memorable day Charlottetown has been called the "Birthplace of Canada".
