The Cardigan Island Narratives project is an initiative of the Prince Edward Island Community Access Program. From December 2010 – March, 2011 the project employed four Island youth to research and digitize the history of the Cardigan area. The researchers conducted interviews with community members, and from these interviews stories were written about the area and its people.

The stories and photographs collected have been digitally stored for long-term availability and will be accessible through this website as well as the Cardigan Heritage website. 

The Cardigan Island Narratives project has also partnered with the Cardigan Area Heritage Centre. The Heritage Centre has provided a great deal of information that it has been collecting over the years. From April 2011- December 2011, the Regional Coordinator of the project, Chris Green, will continue to develop the collection and assist the Heritage Centre in their goals to preserve the rich history of the area. You can reach Chris through the email address listed below. The Cardigan Heritage Centre has been kind enough to provide us with a great deal of collected information that has not yet been placed on display such as documents, books, images, newspaper clippings, and so on for us to scan and copy.
