English:
The Provincial Government has its administrative headquarters in the west end of the city, their Court House on the waterfront and the offices for official political parties are housed in the Coles Building on Queen Square. The province is governed by a Premier and 27 members of the Legislative Assembly. Also located in the Coles Building is the Provincial Archives, which is an excellent resource for researchers and genealogists. It is generally open from Monday to Friday.

The province has four members of parliament and four senators in Ottawa. The federal government presence in Charlottetown is concentrated in two buildings in the downtown. The Jean Canfield Building is two blocks north of Province House and is the headquarters for most of the federal offices. The Daniel J. MacDonald Building across from Province House is the national headquarters for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
