Culture & Community

Prince Edward Island is known for many things: its beautiful, gently rolling landscape, its sandy beaches and red fertile soil, Anne of Green Gables, and golf courses galore. It is also a place to uncover the rich cultural history of its founding peoples, the Mi’kmaq, the Acadians, the Scottish and the Irish, and is a lively place with festivals, theatre, concerts, and cultural events.

For the 2009 Canada Games, we will carry on the tradition of past Games and will call on our local cultures, artists, performers and creators—as well as those from across Canada—to produce exciting and memorable Ceremonies, a vibrant cultural festival, and an engaging National Artist Program.

We will also involve individuals and communities across the province and Canada in the 2009 Canada Games Activity Challenge and will promote Canada Games Days that build on the Games’ unique opportunity to Inspire Dreams and Build Champions.
