“A company that’s billed as a leader in payment processing is using Prince Edward Island as a base for its North American markets and creating many jobs in the process.” CBC Reported


The CBC reported yesterday that Carta Worldwide has opened the doors to its new Atlantic Technology Centre. This state-of-the-art facility can house 20+ staff that will provide 24/7 support and development for current and future North American business expansion.

Carta plans to build a strong presence in the community. Carta also plans to foster a strong relationship with the University of PEI’s Computer Science and Information Technology groups and graduates – providing employment and co-op opportunities to some of the brightest minds PEI and Canada have to offer.

The company is opening what’s called a financial hub, or a centre capable of handling financial transactions.

PEI Innovation minister Allen Roach says the move shows the success P.E.I. has had in attracting businesses with a global outlook.

“This company is established well around the world,” he said. “They have a new innovative product and they are delivering that… they’ve decided to move to Prince Edward Island and we’re happy that they did.”
