District profile

This is a primarily rural district of the central South Shore. It contains some prime potato land, and touches on the eastern edge of Summerside.

Borden-Carleton (pop. 786) is the largest urban centre. It lost the ferries in 1997 and has still not fully recovered economically. McCain and Master Packaging have been major employers here for some time. A business park was established on the strength of the easy access to the mainland created by the Confederation Bridge.

A tourism attraction at Gateway Village, at the foot of the Confederation Bridge, continues to struggle.
