Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact for any questions.


Chinese Islanders

Most early settlers to Prince Edward Island landed on our shores having just crossed an ocean. Islanders grew up on their stories: the hardships they encountered, the severe weather. But when we think of the early Chinese settlers who crossed an ocean, then were faced with making their way across the vast country of Canada before reaching the Island, it is practically unimaginable.

That the parochialism of earlier times offered a less than welcoming introduction to this Island makes me sad. Our folded arms deprived both sides of cultural enrichment, love, and compassion. At the same time, the success stories and cultural riches brought by so many first-generation Chinese Islanders today leave me encouraged. We have moved comfortably into the 21st century with new citizens dedicated to making the Island a better place to live - weather and all.
