The 60th General Assembly of Prince Edward Island was in session from January 3, 1997, to March 21, 2000. The Progressive Conservative Party led by Pat Binns formed the government. In 1996, the 16 dual-member districts were changed to 27 single-member districts. Thus the Assemblymen and Councillors were renamed MLAs
