While care has been taken to ensure the best possible quality, the civic address information on this website may not be free of error or omission. Maps available are a graphical representation and are not intended to be used for legal descriptions or to calculate exact dimensions or areas.

Civic address communities have been defined solely for the purpose of supporting a provincial 911 emergency response system. The Civic Address Locator will provide information on the general geographic area of a particular address or Property Identification Number. Civic address communities do not represent all recognized and distinct communities on Prince Edward Island and caution should be applied if civic address communities are used for any purpose other than the provincial 911 emergency response system.
