Sign Plaza

Wood Islands Welcome Centre Sign Plaza

Great return on your 2016 advertising dollars


The Wood Islands and Area Development Corporation (WIADC) offers local businesses and locally-related businesses an opportunity to advertise by putting up a sturdy well-appointed sign at our Sign Plaza.

Wood Islands is the Gateway to the Island for anyone arriving by Northumberland Ferries — one of only three main points of entry to our Island (airport, bridge, ferry).  Ferry passengers in 2014 were in excess of 350,000 in a season, and commercial vehicles number 14,000+.  Mid-season reports in 2015 showed a 10.6 % increase in ferry traffic.  The trend is positive. The PEI Government’s Visitor Information Centre (VIC) at our Wood Islands Welcome Centre is the first stop for ferry visitors getting their bearings; and they are looking for – YOU.

Only half a kilometre from the Northumberland Ferry Terminal at Wood Islands, the Wood Islands Welcome Centre is home to the PEI Visitor Information Centre; our Liquor Store Agency and Commissary; the “Sweet Factory” candy and ice cream store; and also attracts food service and retail shops.  Our  beautifully landscaped grounds (maintained by a dedicated community volunteer) showcase our heritage-themed buildings built in an early 20th– century country style.  A favourite with tourists is our replica of the Wood Islands Train Station. Many start the Confederation Trail  (hiking and cycling) right here.

Our sign plaza helps to extend your summer season.  In mid-September (a shoulder season for most tourist operations), our Welcome Centre is the centre point for WIADC’s gigantic 70 Mile Yard Sale known for its international popularity and its phenomenal draw to eastern PEI.  (Facebook:  70 Mile Coastal Yard Sale).
