The Kensington & Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be able to provide information on funding programs, local events and to promote their members' businesses. However, we do rely on an active Board of Directors for guidance and support. The Board consists of volunteers from diverse professional backgrounds who are elected to oversee the affairs of the KACC in accordance with its' by-laws. As a business leader in our community, we rely on your passion, knowledge, and expertise to ensure that we remain as relevant and effective as possible and you will have an impact on our business community and the role that the Chamber plays in it.

Katherine MacKenzie
Coldwell Banker
Katherine joined the PEI real estate association in February 2012. She finds that the market has changed a lot since then as we were definitely on a buyers market at that point. Somewhere near the end of 2017, there was a real change and can most definitely say we are in a sellers market now. Through the years, Katherine has mainly worked as a country realtor. She loves people and the wonderful sense of community that comes with country living!
Katherine is very grateful to once again be awarded the International President’s Circle Award.
If you are thinking of buying or selling this year, you can contact Katherine at
