Encouraging and supporting Islanders in making physical activity and healthy eating a daily priority is what Go! PEI is all about. In association with our community partners we offer programs, education and events that help spread the healthy living message.

With funding from the IWK Children's Hospital, Recreation P.E.I. partnered with the City of Charlottetown to develop "Children in Nature P.E.I." It is a nature-based active program created to inspire children and youth to be active and enjoy nature by providing them with the opportunity to visit local natural areas.

Physical Literacy

HIGH FIVE® is Canada’s only comprehensive quality standard for organizations providing recreation and sport programs to children aged 6 to 12.

The way we see it, the answer to “Can I play?” should always be yes.

Tobacco Free Sport & Recreation

Recreation PEI is dedicated to promoting safe facilities for all to enjoy. Since 2006, we’ve participated in tobacco-free sport & recreation initiatives during which a number of helpful materials were developed to assist in the creation of tobacco-free policies.
