Conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Charlottetown, the Confederation Court Mall offers one of the most unique shopping experiences in Atlantic Canada. Offering over 200,000 square feet of retail space with a capacity of over 90 stores and services, the Confederation Court Mall is the hub for Downtown Charlottetown. Provincial landmarks Province House, Confederation Centre and City Hall are all just seconds away. Built in 1979, the mall concept was derived in order to maintain the charm and character of pre-confederation Charlottetown. The ‘Dizzy Block’ was an active commercial center for Prince Edward Island, comprising of over 20 buildings facing the 4 historical streets. These buildings were connected with the construction of the ‘center court’, over what was once mostly parking space and forming the Confederation Court Mall. Its a mall as unique as its city’s storied past.
