Summerside – 2019 National Finalist
Summerside is a vibrant community centrally located on the south shore of Prince Edward Island overlooking the Northumberland Strait. The city of fifteen thousand is noted for its rich heritage, friendly people and unprecedented community spirit. Historically named as the “summer side” of the island, it boasts an extensive range of year round events and activities and is recognized as Canada’s Tournament Town. In being an island community, Summerside is a favorite destination for thousands of vacationers enjoying nearby renowned golf courses, beaches and historical landmarks. With the abundant choice of accommodation, tourists may have the option of a beachfront cottage or hotel setting.
In addition to the tourist industry, Summerside has been able to attract several hi tech companies to the region. This is a fine example of a community striving to improve its economic and social climate. The Communities in Bloom Project is another vehicle adopted by the city to bring people and businesses together and to help set standards the citizens are accustomed.
