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!
