District profile

This is one of two districts that includes part of Stratford, P.E.I.'s fastest growing community.

The district extends east from the Hillsborough River, including a large rural area in addition to the urban north of Stratford.

Improvements to the Hillsborough Bridge have attracted many people from Charlottetown, with many newcomers building larger homes, mixing with the more common modest bungalows. The district is facing many problems as it struggles to provide the infrastructure for a growing population.

A large, new retail centre on the Trans-Canada Highway has contributed to the growth of the area.
