Chief Administrative Officer
Village of Belledune
Belledune is a great place to live. Located in northern New Brunswick, this community offers a quality of life that is second to none. In summer, residents and visitors enjoy the Bay of Chaleur – recognized internationally as one of the world’s 30 most beautiful bays – and numerous other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and water sports. Winter is equally enjoyable for families with sleigh rides, ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and winter carnivals.
With an abundance of nearby natural resources, a year-round, deep-water port, an excellent transportation infrastructure, and an exceptional work force, Belledune has also evolved as a major industrial centre providing a stable tax base for the community.
