Canada's Constitution provides that no province shall have fewer seats in the House of Commons than it has seats in the Senate. As such, Prince Edward Island is constitutionally entitled to four seats in the House of Commons. Canada no longer has any multiple-member constituencies at the federal level. Therefore, there are four ridings in Prince Edward Island.
