Welcome to Saint John, New Brunswick.
The oldest incorporated city in Canada and the only city on the stunning Bay of Fundy. Home to some of the highest tides in the world and the best seafood you’ll ever taste. And with leaders who support cannabis legalization and innovation, it’s no wonder why New Brunswick was named the most progressive province at the Canadian Cannabis Awards.
Here, you are never far from a new, unexpected delight, be it an evening of contemporary fine dining, a band on the boardwalk, whale-watching or exploring unique boutiques and art galleries. Walk through the charming streets of Uptown Saint John, and step into a vibrant past — with an intriguing modern edge. Here, hundreds of years of history are alive.
