A national francophone tourism corridor has added four sites on P.E.I. to its roster.

The P.E.I. component of Canada's Francophone Heritage, Cultural and Tourism Corridor added four attractions in late spring and four more are waiting to be added.

The corridor is a select range of Francophone heritage, cultural and tourism products in Canada that offer visitor services in French, said the website.

The 2019 Congrès mondial acadien, hosted in part on P.E.I. in August; Chez Yvette B&B in Urbainville; Fanningbank, the official residence of Lt.-Gov. Antoinette Perry in Charlottetown and the Mill River Experience hotel and golf course in Woodstock were each added to the website to join the 13 Island attractions already on the corridor.

In addition to the attractions’ individual pages, potential visitors can check out two new videos: "Acadian Experience" and "Prince Edward Island."

 "If we consider the quantity of attractions listed, we see that Prince Edward Island has proportionately the largest representation of all the provinces and territories in the country," says Gilles Arsenault, RDÉE P.E.I.’s tourism development officer.

The objective of this portal, which was developed by RDÉE Canada and its provincial and territorial partners, is to feature attractions and sites that offer services in French, from one end of the country to the other. It allows visitors to plan their trips in specific provinces or throughout the entire country.

The portal also highlights the country's new classification system for French-language services.
