Canada's eastern most geographic region is an area shaped by the forces of glaciation and the ocean waters that surround it. Erosion has carved the rounded peaks of the oldest mountain range in Canada. Steep, rock cliffs, fjords, tides, and some of the oldest rocks in the world are found here along with fertile valleys and the red soils synonymous with Prince Edward Island potato farms. The first settled region of Canada has a long and storied history. Early inhabitants like the Mi'kmaq and Beothuk carved out lives both on the coast and inland in the colder months.
