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.
The Tourism PEI (http://www.tourismpei.com/index.php3) website will provide you with links to a variety of accommodations across the Island as well as information on places to eat, festivals and events and things to do during your stay.
The UPEI Campus offers residence rooms to conference participants. A number of UPEI residence rooms have been reserved for the participants until May 1st. Choose from one of three UPEI residences, each with its own unique style and amenities. Residence accommodations include free parking, local telephone access, a bed linen and towel exchange service, and 24 hour security.
We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in the summer of 2022!
