New GPS Feature Added to Tourism PEI Website


The Honourable Valerie Docherty, Minister of Tourism, is pleased to announce the addition of Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates to listings on the Tourism PEI website.

Tourists travelling with a hand-held GPS or GPS navigation system in their car can enter the coordinates and be given directions to the place of interest.

“In the past few years, more and more travellers tend to own a GPS device so the potential audience for this new feature is huge,” said Minister Docherty. “With the participation of operators, my department added this enhancement to the tourism website and now users can take advantage of this latest technology trend.”

The GPS coordinates appear below the toll-free number for a listing, and above their email address. For more information, please visit our website at
