Province hosting workshops for the public on Confederation Trail use

The provincial government is seeking feedback from Island residents to help develop a long-term plan for use of the Confederation Trail.

In-person workshops will take place across the province starting October 30 (full schedule in the backgrounder below). The public is encouraged to attend a workshop to share recommendations, personal stories, and comments about the trail. 

“This is a great opportunity to engage in a province-wide discussion about the public’s experience with the Confederation Trail. This active pathway showcases the beauty of Prince Edward Island from Tignish to Elmira and is enjoyed year-round by thousands of residents and tourists. We want to hear from people to help us ensure the Confederation Trail is safe and properly maintained for generations to come.”

- Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Ernie Hudson

The public can also provide feedback until December 1 through either an online survey, online at Confederation Trail Workshops, by email at DTIpilot@gov.pe.ca, by fax at 902-368-5395, or by mail to Confederation Trail Workshops, PO Box 2000, Charlottetown, PEI C1A 7N8.      

“Government is reaching out to user groups, stakeholders and the general public to help develop a clear and fair plan for the use of the Confederation Trail,” added Minister Hudson. “We want to hear from Islanders and experts about how we can work together to enjoy and preserve this important piece of infrastructure.” 

Prince Edward Island’s portion of the Confederation Trail was the first to be completed along abandoned railway lines in August 2000. Government and communities have been working to extend trails and provide upgraded amenities.
