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.


Pulling Strings

This book respresents the most local output of a major research project developed at the University of Prince Edward Island, and supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Contributors were guided to look specifically at what lessons Prince Edward Island may care to scrutinize from a global review of over 100 islands that enjoy similar measures of policy autonomy: from Bermuda to Tasmania, from the Cook Islands to the Faroes. While respectful of diversity, this book collates policy papers that emerge as particularly salient in the development strategies of most sub-national (or no sovereign) island jurisdictions today, and locates them within Prince Edward Island's own context. The outcome, we hope, is a handy manual for reflection for all those engaged in, and concerned with, governance on PEI.
