Prince Edward Island participates in the National Forestry Database by contributing yearly summary data, including: forest inventory, wood supply, forest fires, forest insects, forest products, silviculture, revenues and pest control product use. The National Forestry Database is Canada's Compendium of Forestry Statistics, serving as our national source of credible, accurate, and reliable forestry statistics.
The principal role of the National Forestry Database is to collect and compile national forest data and forest management statistics. The National Forest Database serves as Canada’s credible, accurate, and reliable source of national information on forest management and its impact on the forest resource.
Mandated through the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers, a partnership composed of fourteen federal, provincial and territorial ministers, the Canadian Forest Service at Natural Resources Canada developed and maintains the database and has responsibility for disseminating national forestry statistics. With the guiding support of members, the Canadian Forest Service collects data from provincial or territorial resource management organizations. Federal land data are provided by the responsible federal departments and compiled by the CFS.

The sample dataset found here provides annual information on number of forest fires occurring on Prince Edward Island.
Reports the total number of Government of Prince Edward Island employees as of the last pay period processed in December of each year.
Classified employees include permanent, probationary and provisional employees. Unclassified employees include casual, temporary, contract and student employees. Unclassified employees reported includes the total number of employees who received pay as of the last pay period in December.
This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for finfish (brook and rainbow trout) and shellfish (mussels and soft shell clams) for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes a total of nine rivers that are tested across PEI, with three of the rivers being sampled each year.
Finfish are collected from the river by electrofishing or rod and reel. Shellfish are collected from the same river systems manually, as close to the finfish sampling as possible. The purpose of the sampling is to determine if pesticide residues accumulate in the fish/shellfish.
This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for stream water samples for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program.
The sampling includes a total of 9 rivers across PEI, with at least 3 of the rivers being sampled each year.
Stream water samples are collected at least once per year during wet weather sampling conditions.
Department staff collects the samples, which are then sent to a laboratory for analysis.
Results with a " < " represent values below the lab's reporting or quantification limit.
Such results do not confirm the presence nor the absence of a pesticide compound below that level.
Water Quality Guideline or Benchmark Values:
When available, Health Canada Guidance Values were used,
otherwise CCME Canadian Water Quality Guidelines for the Protection of Aquatic Life were used, and otherwise USEPA Aquatic Life Benchmark values were.
