Sign Plaza

Wood Islands Welcome Centre Sign Plaza

Great return on your 2018 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. Your sign will coordinate to a map in the Sign Plaza as well.

Wood Islands is the premium Gateway experience. We are one of only three main points of entry to our Island — bridge, ferry, and airport.  Northumberland ferry passengers number in excess of 475,000 annually and this number is trending upward faster than the other two gateways.  The Wood Islands Welcome Centre has also experienced a substantial increase in business these past years trending as positively as PEI’s tourism numbers.  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.

In addition to the PEI Visitor Information Centre, the Wood Islands Welcome Centre is home to our well appointed Liquor Store Agency and Commissary; the “Sweet Factory” candy and ice cream store; Lady Slipper Express café; Island Gold Honey retail store; and our own folk art wood worker.  Our  beautifully maintained 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. Recently, we’ve been advised that we are slated to have one of seven electric car charging stations as part of the PEI Network of charging stations.

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).

Don’t miss out on a day of advertising in the 2018 season; we are now taking registration and payment for your 2018 advertisement in our Sign Plaza. The ferries start running at the beginning of May and go until nearly Christmas.
