With epei.ca recently dropping, a friend of mine pointed me to pei.ca. I thought it was interesting that PEI.ca wasn’t reserved for the province. The province uses PrinceEdwardIsland.ca.

I don’t know who owns pei.ca but could possibly be someone here. Great name.

Could there be any chance that the province of PEI putting in a request to CIRA to somehow acquire it?

I don't think so, that would open up a giant can of worms CIRA wouldn't want to crack open. The only slight chance would be to file a CDRP, but there would have to be some mark on PEI and it would have to be used in some way that clearly violated that mark. I haven't looked, but I doubt that's the case.

Bottom line, I'd bet no way.
 
I agree with RLM. Submitting a CDRP claim would be their only option but far from guaranteed.

If anything was reserved for them it would have been their actual/official name (princeedwardisland.ca), and not the acronym PEI (even if the acronym is more commonly used). It's kinda similar to how NFLD.ca isn't reserved for Newfoundland either. And most other acronyms for provinces are restricted (rather than reserved) since they were previously available as third level extensions.
