PEI’s motto is parva sub ingenti meaning the small under the protection of the great. PEI is Canada’s smallest province. Its location, along with the island’s fertile red soil, has given PEI 2nicknames – Garden of the Gulf(referring to the Gulf of St. Lawrence) and Million-Acre Farm. It is also sometimes referred to as Spud Island because of its significant potato production.
