Living, Working and Playing in Summerside
"There has been very little turnover and we have good quality staff. We have had easy access to staff and that is the most critical thing."
Excerpt from an interview with David Perry, Carestream Health
For those who are currently working and living in most technology-savvy Canadian cities, it can be difficult to imagine no traffic jams, no major commute to work, no smog or air pollution.
Currently a community of 16,000 residents, Summerside is poised for expansion. It serves an extended area of over 45,000 year round and its location on the eastern seaboard provides easy access to the world.
In the city's downtown core there are many specialty shops, restaurants and attractions just a few steps away from Summerside's boardwalk and a gentle stroll along the water's edge.
Having a modern outlook and preparing for the influx of people who want to live in a safer, more family oriented environment, Summerside has established itself as a desirable and affordable city. The living is easy in Summerside!

Living in Summerside
For those who are currently working and living in most technology-savvy Canadian cities, it can be difficult to imagine no traffic jams, no major commute to work, no smog or air pollution. When you add the port facility, the short distance to an international airport, and the readily available telecommunications network, Summerside simply becomes the best location for your business.
Besides what it can do for your business, consider what living and working in Summerside can do for the well-being of your employees. Summerside combines that small town feeling with big city amenities. It provides that idyllic lifestyle most people only dream about. Here you can easily balance a hectic work schedule with a healthy family life. After a busy day, you can play tourist, get physical or simply lay back and enjoy the scenic beauty that surrounds you.
Any way you look at it, Summerside is a great place to work and to raise your family. While commercially, the city is a bustling hive of activity, it remains a healthy and safe environment, surrounded by sand and sea, rolling farmland and, best of all, peace.
In many North American cities, it is often difficult to find affordable housing but in Summerside that is not the case. Charming homes with more than adequate back yard space for children and pets are listed under $125,000 and all the neighbourhoods have safe, tree-lined, well lit streets. Even executive housing, with all the bells and whistles, including ocean views, is well below the national average.
The community offers plenty of cultural and recreational opportunities and welcomes newcomers who want to get involved at any level. Summerside features a first-class recreational complex featuring twin rinks hosting the Summerside Caps hockey team and the Summerside Storm basketball team. As well Credit Union Place also has a 25m swimming pool and leisure pool as well as bowling, a restaurant, racing track, concerts and more. Read more about Credit Union Place at www.cupevents.ca. Classes in all the arts are offered in various independant studios and organized sports abounds. Being so close to local farmers, the community boasts several fresh fruit and vegetables stands (many organic) in season, as well as a local farmers' market open year round.
When considering the happiness of your employees and their families, making the move to Summerside is a win/win decision. And for those whose minds are yet to be made up: Summerside is a mere four hour drive to Halifax, two hours to Moncton and 45 minutes to Charlottetown each with their own appeal, each an ideal mini-vacation, shopping or business trip.
