The Island Way of Life


Mirrored Through the Eyes of the Kensington Area,
“The Heart of Prince Edward Island”

Discover the “Island Way of Life” expressed through our art, music, and literature. It is in our relationship with our natural heritage. It is visible in our outstanding citizens and community spirit. We share it with the world through our industries—from farming and fishing to aviation and information technology. It is the way we live on Prince Edward Island.

In a letter he wrote to Rev. John Wightman while surveying the Island in 1820, Walter Johnstone said: “To have a right knowledge of this country, one must come and see it.” Please, come along with us and see the “Island Way of Life” through our eyes.
