Description This district includes a large section of the eastern shore of P.E.I. and, as of the 2006 redistribution, incorporates a large section of the former Morell-Fortune Bay district. The former Georgetown–Baldwin's Road district was almost totally absorbed into the area.

Georgetown (pop. 721), which has one of the region's best harbours, was formerly an important port with a burgeoning shipbuilding industry, but that role has been diminished, and is further in question as the federal government seeks to divest itself of the Island's ports.

At the Irving-owned East Isle Shipyard in Georgetown, recent lucrative contracts have kept the company afloat.

Among the major tourist and recreation draws is the Dundarave championship golf course, first built in 1999, which received a "near-perfect" rating from the influential magazine Golf Digest in 2002.
