Summer is in full swing now and we hope that your businesses are benefiting from the increase number of summer visitors and locals out enjoying the Island.

Remember to take time to enjoy the nice days to rejuvenate and spend time with family & friends!

We are busy working on a few ideas for the Fall and also will be announcing very soon the Chamber Perks App! This is an app that anyone can have on their phone and it allows them to find a chamber member location and their details and the chamber member will also have the opportunity to offer a "perk" or a discount to anyone using these apps.
We are happy to join the Summerside and West Prince Chamber in this initiative and excited to launch it soon!
Welcome back Maleah!
We are very happy to welcome back Maleah Welton for the summer position with the Kensington & Area Chamber this summer!

Maleah is a recent KISH graduate who enjoys being involved in her community through sports and work. When she is not working, you can find her on the soccer field coaching, or the rugby pitch training. Before leaving the island for university in the fall, she is looking forward to once again spending the summer in the Kensington area visiting chamber members and supporting our local businesses!

"Taking on this position again this year has me ecstatic to go out and visit our members and support them in any way I can! Being a part of such a great community my entire life has provided me with so many possibilities, and I can't wait to be a part of it again this summer and learn even more!"

Executive Director

Julie & Maleah, attended the Greater Summerside Chamber of Commerce AGM on June 29th!

Welcome to the newly sworn in 2023-24 President of the Board, Filip Hrga!

We were able to get out last week and show our appreciation to some of the major sponsors who support the Kensington & Area Chamber of Commerce! We hope you enjoyed your treats from C&B Corner Cafe!

The Chamber could not achieve their mandate without their support. To have their involvement for the various events and training sessions throughout the year is very much appreciated!

We plan to visit more of our sponsors and partners over the summer!

Message from the Mayor
Did You Know – At one time the Kensington Police Services did not patrol the streets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You may have noticed the Kensington Police Services are now out on patrol all day every day. This will provide a better level of security in the Town of Kensington and also ensure traffic is monitored 24 hours a day. This is one more step the Town of Kensington is doing to make sure our town continues to be the best place to live and work.

Red Sands Golf Course
Red Sands Golf Course is situated in the rolling countryside between Cavendish and Kensington, P.E.I.'s premiere vacation destination. The course, scenery and facilities are unmatched on the Island, while the staff and management go to extremes to provide a genuinely enjoyable experience both on and off the course.

The quality of the course is equally impressive. After your 9 or 18 holes, enjoy a conversation, beverage and sandwich on the picturesque sun deck of our club house. Contact us for summer memberships for your extended holiday.
