Charlottetown, October 18, 2021 - In 1993, women were elected and/or appointed to five of the most powerful positions in the province of Prince Edward Island: Premier, Leader of the Opposition, Speaker of the House, Deputy Speaker, and Lieutenant Governor. This is the first and only time in Canadian history that five women held these positions at the same time in a provincial or territorial government. These women are known as PEI’s Famous Five.
