Welcome to the Miramichi. These pages link to the very best our region has to offer: natural attraction, advanced manufacturing, creative technologies, green energy and growing markets. Our commitment to our bountiful natural resources and brilliant future shines through everything we do. Spirit and success - it's just in our nature.

The Miramichi is well-positioned to be the hub of New Brunswick’s green collar economy — green energy, creative technologies, natural attraction (ecotourism) and advanced manufacturing.
