Campus: Facilities, Residence and Location

Maritime Christian College is located in Charlottetown, PEI. It is one out of the two degree-granting institutions on Prince Edward Island, with the University of Prince Edward Island being the other one. Its mandate is unique in the sense that its priority is to train ministers and Christian educators, so it is not an accredited school. Consequently, the courses that it offers may not be transferable to other secular institutions. Housing accommodations are also available near the school, and a typical dormitory costs around $1,200.

Charlottetown Information

Charlottetown is a Canadian city and the provincial capital of Prince Edward Island. Charlottetowns economy is dominated by the public sector. The provincial, federal, and municipal levels of government are significant employers in the central part of Queens County, as well as healthcare and secondary and post-secondary education. Technology companies have also been increasing their share of the city's workforce in the past decade, however the actual numbers are quite small once call-centres are excluded. Other significant economic activities include light manufacturing, such as chemicals, bio-technology, and machining.

The city's streetscape with a centrally -planned downtown core containing many Victorian-era houses and buildings is an attraction, as well as the waterfront redevelopment project in recent decades which has seen walking trails and parks developed on former industrial lands.

Popular attractions within the city include the provincial legislature at Province House, which hosted the Charlottetown Conference, as well as Founders Hall, a recently redeveloped railway maintenance building which now houses an interactive trip through history tracing the development of Canada as a nation.
