Saint John


Saint John is a true city. Truly inspired by the nature that defines it.
Nestled on the powerful Bay of Fundy, Saint John is a beautiful, historic, and vibrant urban city—surrounded by breathtaking and rejuvenating nature experiences.

As Canada’s first incorporated city, you’re sure to be caught up in its gorgeous historic architecture, eclectic shops and restaurants, and rich arts and culture experiences. You’ll also be swept away by its natural attractions. The tides of the Bay of Fundy, the nature trails of Rockwood Park, and the relaxing pockets of historic urban parks all invite you to breathe deeply and enjoy a pause from the city’s energy.

It’s also the only city on the Bay of Fundy. The Bay is an astonishing force of nature. And from the City of Saint John, you have a front seat for every experience it offers. Uptown Saint John rises majestically from the shores of this world-famous bay—so wherever your exploration takes you, the Bay of Fundy is your constant companion. Serene, yes, but also extremely powerful. The tides in the Bay of Fundy can rise an astonishing 16 metres, as 160 billion tonnes of seawater flow in (and out) of the bay as the tide changes. And where the St. John (Wolastoq) River meets the Bay of Fundy, you can get a feel for that power—at the Reversing Falls, the tides of the Bay of Fundy actually force the water at the mouth of the river to reverse its flow. Access not only to the Bay of Fundy, but also to surrounding rivers and lakes offer waterfront access in abundance.

Saint John is also truly a city of distinctive neighbourhoods, each with its own unique geography, personality, and density. Our neighbourhoods span from the historic, to the recently built. From historic Uptown with its urban vibe to more suburban communities, some with an almost rural feel. They vary from dense and vibrant, to spacious and peaceful. These incredibly diverse areas combine to form the city we all love.

If you’re considering a move to Saint John, perhaps the most important thing you need to know: our residents have a history of being the happiest people in Canada*. Why is that? Might be the people—we’re a friendly, warm, and welcoming bunch. Might be the location—on the stunning Bay of Fundy. Could be that it’s the perfect mix of urban energy, outdoors-y fun, and creative vibe. Then again, it could be that your incomparable lifestyle is also unbelievably affordable.
