About Us

Indigenous Tourism Prince Edward Island (ITPEI)

ITPEI is a brand new not for profit Indigenous tourism association supporting the growth of Indigenous tourism businesses and community enterprises in the Canadian Province of Prince Edward Island.

Situated in the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaw people, this has been the home of the people of Epekwitk (Eh'beh'kwitk).   For over 14,000 years these traditional lands have been the home of the L'Nu (the people of the tongue or language).  

ITPEI is the nationally mandated Indigenous tourism organization that serves to provide support services to new and existing Indigenous tourism business owners, community tourism enterprises as well as the artists and artisans that create beautiful and authentic Mi'kmaw designs and representations of the culture.

In the near future ITPEI will work to establish further partnerships within the tourism industry and long term supports from government and community partners with the goal of increasing the number of market ready Indigenous owned businesses in PEI.  ITPEI will also work to increase the number of jobs that Indigenous people will have in the tourism industry and find ways to increase the overall GDP of the tourism industry.

We look forward to updating you all in the next short while as we work to establish our communications strategy through our ITPEI Strategic Implementation Plan for our membership.

We thank you for your time and we hope to hear from you.  Should you require any further support please contact us at the following email address:   indigenoustourismpei@gmail.com .
