location of the city

Summerside is situated on an island, but this certainly does not mean that doing business is difficult. The city is connected to mainland Canada by the nearby Confederation Bridge. It is just a short drive from Atlantic Canadian and northeastern U.S. commercial centres. Summerside is ideally situated for commerce with modern port facilities, private first-class airport at Slemon Park, direct access to the TransCanada Highway and over 70 commercial flights from neighbouring, major airports. Summerside’s catchment area within a 3-hour drive includes:

  • 2 million people
  • 18 cities
  • 19 universities
  • 27 college campuses
