A “platinum” sponsor of the the 2008 Canadian National Junior Baseball Championship Charlottetown has a long history of hosting successful events. In 1864, Charlottetown hosted a conference of political delegates, and from that historic meeting Canada was born. Today, hosting a sporting event in the capital city of Prince Edward Island promises to be as equally historic and exciting. In Charlottetown, we have the drive and determination to make every event hosted in our city a unique success. Our ability to offer a personalized experience like no other makes Charlottetown the natural choice for the 2010 Championship.
A “Platinum” sponsor of the 2008 Canadian National Junior Baseball Championship, the Province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) is delighted to be a supporter of this national sporting event. Located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence PEI is Canada’s smallest province. Its size, however, has never held the province back from participating on the national stage. Islanders are tremendously proud of their province, culture and heritage and once an Islander, always an Islander, whether you may be living on the east coast or the west coast. The province encourages all of the tournament’s participants, family members, friends and fans to meet our people, enjoy the scenery, visit our white sandy beaches, play some golf on one of our many spectacular golf courses, taste the Island’s fine cuisine and above all, relax and enjoy the Island’s splendor. We know that you will enjoy your time with us and we hope that you will come back again. To learn more about the Province of PEI visit the province’s website.
