Community Support Program

We invite not-for-profit organizations to apply for support under our Community Support Program to help them deliver programs, services and projects that benefit the community.

Initiatives must take place in the City of Summerside and must fall into one of these categories:1) Safety, Security and Crime Prevention; 2) Economic Development; 3) Water, Land and Energy; 4) Health and Well-Being, and; 5) Arts, Heritage and Culture. Organizations must present a strong case for how they support the municipality’s efforts in one or more of these major categories through their core operations, special projects or major capital initiatives.

Tourism Accommodation Levy

To foster the growth of Summerside’s tourism sector, we charge a hotel levy to local hospitality operators (with 10 or more rooms). This allows us to offer funding support for tourism, sporting, and recreation events in the City of Summerside.

If you are planning a tourism, sporting, or recreational event in Summerside, you can apply for funding. We accept applications throughout the year. (See downloadable application form below.)

Examples of events funded partially through our hotel levy:

  • Summerside Lobster Carnival
  • Air Show Atlantic
  • Boys Under-15 National Baseball Championships
  • the Grand Slam of Curling
