Our village has over 30 km of coastline, as well as an ice free Deep Water Port. Our Industrial Park features a modular fabrication facility that is available for rent or lease. In our light Industrial Park we have a connection to a CN spur line that allows tenants to ship and receive their products and supplies by rail.
Our industrial parks are conveniently located adjacent to NB Highway 11, so goods and products can easily reach major supply routes to the rest of the Atlantic Canada, Quebec, and the Northeastern United States.
