The owners of the lots were expected to recruit settlers and finance their transportation to the island, whereby settlers were required to clear a certain amount of forest for farmland and pay annual "quitrents" to their landlords.
PrinceEdwardIsland is the first province in Canada to elect a Premier of non-European descent (Joseph Atallah Ghiz) in 1986.
