Prince Edward County is located on a large irregular headland or littoral at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, just west of the head of the St. Lawrence River. This headland (officially named Prince Edward County in 1792) is surrounded on the north and east by the Bay of Quinte; as the Murray Canal now connects the bay to Lake Ontario across the only land connection, the county could technically be considered an island.

According to the 2006 Census, Prince Edward has a population of 25,496 over an area of 1050.14 square kilometers.

The county's relatively mild climate due to the influence of Lake Ontario, has led to the establishment of about 50 vineyards and close to a dozen wineries. The influence of Lake Ontario, also results in heavier snowfall than surounding counties.

Welcome to this unique island community, a place of tranquility, creativity, hospitality and fun. Prince Edward County residents are proud of their United Empire Loyalist roots and distinctive towns and villages. They generously share the spectacular natural beauty of the County with over 100,000 visitors each year. Traditional agriculture is the backbone of the area, enhanced by a growing wine industry. The unique ‘County’ culture is enhanced by many artists and artisans making this their home.

The County was created by Upper Canada’s founding lieutenant-governor John Graves Simcoe July 16, 1792 and named after Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent (the fourth son of King George III) who was commander-in-chief of British North America and the father of Queen Victoria.

Some of the earliest United Empire Loyalist settlements in Ontario were set up here shortly after the American Revolution. The County was originally composed of three townships named in honour of three of George III’s daughters: Ameliasburgh, named after Princess Amelia; Marysburgh, named after Princess Mary; and Sophiasburgh, named after Princess Sophia.

In 1998, all of the former municipalities in Prince Edward County amalgamated to form a single-tier municipality as part of province-wide municipal restructuring.
