Port Elgin, New Brunswick

Port Elgin is a beautiful laid-back coastal town at the mouth of the Gaspereau River where it empties into the Northumberland Strait. It has the calm ambiance and natural charm of a seaside village, but with all the amenities necessary to make one's stay comfortable and enjoyable. With its natural beauty, rich heritage, and welcoming community spirit, it’s a perfect port to explore breathtaking scenery or to call home.

Rich Natural Beauty

From the stunning coastline to the picturesque forests, Port Elgin is a great place to take in some stunning Canadian scenery. Its long, wide stretch of shoreline boasts some of the warmest waters and most spectacular sunsets. There are diverse nature trails that cross woodlands and open fields, alive with the sights and sounds of native wildlife and plants. Its salt marshes and wetlands, with their unique ecosystems, are fantastic places to connect with nature.

Safe and Welcoming Community

Port Elgin is a town of more than 400 inhabitants with English as the most spoken language. The small population means neighbors are more likely to stop and say hello, so it’s easy to make new friends. The intimacy fosters genuine connection and trust as generally everyone knows everyone else. There are often community events as well for bonding with neighbors and becoming a part of each other’s lives.

Strong Economic Opportunities

Spurred by its proximity to major transportation routes, Port Elgin offers various economic opportunities for enterprisers and businesses. Its geographical location near the towns of Sackville, Amherst and Shediac, and the city of Moncton provides a sufficient market conducive to entrepreneurship. Beside retail and trade businesses, agriculture, tourism, construction and manufacturing, finance and real estate, and health, education and social services make up a large part of the Port Elgin economy.

Affordable Housing Cost

The housing market in Port Elgin is downright affordable compared to large urban centers. For those looking to rent rather than buy, the town’s low population means the rent price is lower too because of not much demand. Whether buying or renting, the expenses related to keeping a roof over one's head in Elgin are lower than the national average. One can choose from a mixed array of housing options, with single‐detached family dwellings and small apartment units as the most popular picks.

Accessible Healthcare Facilities and Services

If sleeping soundly to the gentle sound of the waves, and breathing in the crisp sea air are not producing the desired health effect, there’s the Port Elgin and Region Health Centre to meet the medical needs of townspeople. In case of higher levels of medical care, the city of Moncton with its multi-specialty healthcare facilities is less than an hour away. Either way, it ensures comprehensive healthcare coverage for both out-of-towners and locals.

Broad History and Heritage

Founded in 1690, Port Elgin has a rich history that can be glimpsed in its historic streets, museums, and well-preserved architecture. One of the oldest structures in town is the Monro Heritage Centre with its Gothic revival styling that whispers of the past. It is now a community museum that tells the town heritage as the first incorporated village in New Brunswick. Fort Gaspareaux, on the other hand, is the archaeological site of a French military fortification from the Seven Years' War that is located east of the village.

Festive Community Celebrations

Port Elgin knows how to party with a smattering of seaside merriments held throughout the year. The annual Port Elgin Exhibition features floral and vegetable displays, woodsmen and craft competitions, horse pulling and harness racing, and much, much more to raise agricultural awareness. The Lupin Quilt Fair and Market takes place every summer, showcasing hundreds of handmade quilts made by crafters from around the Maritimes. Meanwhile, the Winegarden Wine Festival celebrates wine, spirits, music, and food in New Brunswick's oldest winery and distillery.

Varied Outdoor Recreation

The area around Port Elgin is full of fun things to do. There’s always an outdoor option any time of the year from hiking and biking in the warm months to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing during the cold ones. The Gaspereau River, which runs directly through the village, is canoe and kayak friendly while the Gaspereaux Heritage Trail passes through old railway tracks, logging roads, and abandoned paths to excite walkers, runners, and cyclists.
