Connection & Ambassador Programs

Achieve your dream of coming home to PEI

The Summerside Connection Program is a free service, designed specifically for former island residents and friends of Summerside. Those enrolled in the program are kept informed of the various employment, investment and business opportunities in the Summerside area. Program participants will receive regular communications on new opportunities as they arise.

The goal of the Summerside Connection Program is to build a bridge between Summerside and former residents of Prince Edward Island.

The Summerside Connection Program has four main objectives:

Through it, former island residents and friends of Summerside members reconnect with the area and are regularly informed of

  • job opportunities in Summerside
  • investment opportunities in Summerside
  • networks with professional and social circles about Summerside and its opportunities
  • the ways of staying connected with recent graduates in the area.

Enrolling in the Summerside Connection Program will allow you to:

  • Remain up-to-date with community, business and economic developments
  • Search for personal, business or professional opportunities that make the most of your experience and expertise
  • Actively promote your skills and experiences to local companies
  • Receive information regarding job market, business sector and investment opportunities.

Summerside needs you to help, support and become a key part of our growing community. There’s no better time than now to return to Prince Edward Island.

Summerside is currently experiencing many exciting new business developments. The transformation of commerce in the community is well underway. Significant growth continues in several commercial sectors, among them, E Health, IT select services, aerospace and sustainable technology, with leading companies such as RadNet and Vector Aerospace.

The rapidly expanding business environment of Summerside beckons former islanders to return and become an important part of our future. Education and work can often lead us away from home. As we experience other regions it becomes clear that one of the great advantages of Summerside is quality-of-life. Summerside Connection wants to help you achieve your dream of returning home.

Ambassador Program

We’re also recruiting ambassadors to endorse Summerside as a great place in which to invest and live. Ambassadors will enjoy increased networking opportunities with other Summerside businesses, industry partnership opportunities and promotional opportunities for their companies. If you already informally promote the City when you’re talking about doing business here, we would like to support you, and to follow up on any potential leads you may identify.
