Travel from Halifax to PEI (Charlottetown)

Charlottetown is located in the province of Prince Edward Island (PEI), which is different from the province of Nova Scotia where Halifax resides. Current COVID-rules differ between Canadian provinces, and therefore all participants in post-conference workshops need to ensure they are eligible to travel to PEI. Please visit the webpage: non-residents travelling to PEI or residents travelling to and from PEI for current travel restrictions for PEI.

For those wishing to commute from Halifax to Charlottetown on their own rather than using the bus transportation, Charlottetown can be reached from Halifax by car, either via the Confederation Bridge (approx 325 km, crossing through the province of New Brunswick) or via a ferry from Caribou, Nova Scotia to PEI (approx 260 km). Charlottetown can also be reached by plane from the Halifax International Airport (link) (approx a 40 minutes direct flight).

Accommodations in Charlottetown

Participants will be responsible for booking their own accommodations.  Below you will find information on places to stay by visiting links to our Tourism PEI website and on campus residences.  Please contact the hotel or residence directly to book your accommodation.
