The Rotary Club of Charlottetown was admitted into Rotary International on October 1, 1917 and received its Charter on November 8th of that year having been sponsored by the Rotary Club of Halifax.
Plans were developed with the Rotary Club of Charlottetown giving leadership in celebrating 100 years of Rotary in the Province which included all Island Rotarians and the six Rotary Clubs. The Charlottetown Club has been active in promoting the concept of Rotary throughout the Province, sponsoring four of the other five clubs currently on the Island: Summerside (1943), Hillsborough (1979), Montague (1985) and Charlottetown Royalty (1987). The Rotary Club of Stratford is the other Island club (2002).
