What is Here:

Home to the Wood Islands &Area Development Corporation (WIADC) – a not-for-profit community organization who owns and operates the Wood Islands Village complex and also the Wood Islands Lighthouse.

The ‘Village’ is the location of the Wood Islands Welcome Centre/PEI Visitor Information Centre (VIC). Upstairs from the VIC is the Plough The Waves Community Room which seats 100 people and has a full kitchen available for your special occasions. Next door is our Agency Liquor Store & Commissary – the prettiest liquor store on the Island. The Commissary (in the Liquor Store) offers fresh coffee and some “provisions” you might have left behind such as BBQ, campfire, food, books, or personal items.
