KENSINGTON, PE- May 31, 2017 — The Kensington and Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to see strong economic growth on Prince Edward Island. According to Premier MacLauchlan’s recent economic report, PEI is expected to lead the Atlantic Provinces with a growth of 1.8%, primarily due to prosperous tourism and manufacturing industries. The KACC will continue to support economic well-being and growth in the Kensington area, and on PEI as a whole.
“We are pleased to see increases in business prosperity on PEI, and to see small businesses are doing well,” said Rosalie Profitt, President of the Kensington and Area Chamber of Commerce. “This is great news for our membership, community and province.”
Unfortunately, wages on PEI are still the lowest in the country. The KACC understands that a low minimum wage can have a negative impact on the everyday lives of Islanders. In addition, the KACC is aware of the repercussions raising the minimum wage can have on small business. As the voice for small business in the area, the KACC will advocate on behalf of its members in both regards.
