Charlottetown was the site of the second annual premiers' conference held 14 and 15 August 1961. The first annual meeting of the Canadian premiers was held in Quebec City in 1960 at the suggestion of then Quebec premier, Jean Lesage. The meeting delegates were officially welcomed to Prince Edward Island by Charlottetown mayor, Walthen A. Gaudet, at a reception held at the Charlottetown Hotel. The meetings were chaired by Premier Frost of Ontario and co-chaired by Prince Edward Island Premier Walter Shaw. Meetings were held at Province House and topics discussed included: the coordination of provincial sales tax collection, disaster aid, forest fire protection, agricultural and uniform traffic legislation research, portable pensions, the creation of a council of provincial premiers, the proposed building to commemorate the centennial of Confederation, education, Lord's Day Act, off-shore mineral rights, and financial matters.
