Live in Perfect Balance

The Saint John region’s population is growing as more people recognize the benefits of living in a city and its surrounding communities close to nature, epic rivers and the amazing Bay of Fundy.

AFFORDABLE

With houses in beautiful, family-friendly communities selling for a fraction of what they cost in the big city, you’ll be able to buy a home (or two) here and have plenty of money left over to experience all the things the Saint John region has to offer residents. The average single-family house price in Saint John is $290,000 compared to well over $1,000,000 in Toronto.

Land acknowledgement

The Saint John Region is situated on the traditional and unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’Kmaq, and Peskotomuhkati Nations. This territory is covered by Peace and Friendship Treaties signed with the British Crown in the 1700s. The treaties did not surrender the territory and resources, but recognized Wolastoqiyik, Mi’Kmaq, and Peskotomuhkati title, and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.

 

Envision Saint John: The Regional Growth Agency pays respect to the elders, past and present, and descendants of this land, and is committed to moving forward in the spirit of truth, collaboration, and reconciliation.
