The nine rinks will play a modified triple knockout draw, with the winners of each section advancing to a two-game championship round. Winners from each section drop down to compete in the next section. If a team wins all three draw sections, they will be declared champions, and the championship round will not be played. A team winning two sections will advance to both championship games and take the championship if they win either game, while their opponent would have to win both sections.

The winning team will advance to the Canadian Mixed Championship, Nov. 7-14, 2021, at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club in Alberta. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no spectators allowed in the facility for this event.

Live end-by-end results from the Provincial Mixed will be available at PEICurling.com/scoreboard
