Summerside (2006 pop. 14,500) is a Canadian city in Prince County, Prince Edward Island. It is the second largest city in the province and the principal municipality for the western part of the island. Summerside was officially incorporated as a town on April 1, 1877 and reincorporated as a city on April 1, 1995.

Large employers in the city include the Summerside tax centre, from which the Canada Revenue Agency administers the Goods and Services Tax (or GST).
