Welcome to the PEI Council of the Arts website

The Prince Edward Island Council of the Arts (PEICA) has been providing vital support to the arts on Prince Edward Island since 1974. Dedicated to ensuring that all Prince Edward Islanders enjoy the benefits of a healthy arts community, the PEICA works to foster the development of the arts through advocacy, education, programs and services.

The PEICA enjoys an arm’s-length relationship with the Prince Edward Island Department of Tourism and Culture, which contributes the majority of the PEICA’s funding. These funds are administered by the PEICA on the Department’s behalf, and are allocated to grant programs and services for artists and arts administrators.

The Council works in partnership with the arts community of Prince Edward Island,the Council’s membership, the government and people of Prince Edward Island, to fulfill its mission to make the arts integral to the lives of all Prince Edward Islanders.
