Located in eastern Canada, in the province of New Brunswick is where you will find Fredericton. Home to over 58,000 residents, Fredericton is the 3rd largest city in the province, only behind Moncton and Saint John. 

The city is located right by the Saint John River, an important feature of this lovely little town, both historically and economically. The river flows all the way from Maine, USA and forms a border between Quebec and Maine, with Fredericton being the 2nd major city that the river passes through. Sadly, the river is prone to flooding since its water level can rise by an additional 8 meters and Fredericton is the most susceptible city to flooding.  The most recent flood happened in 2018. This happens because Fredericton sits relatively low, with an average of 17 m (or 56 ft) altitude above sea level. 

The river also splits the city from west to east, dividing Fredericton into two sectors known as the Northside and the Southside. There have been many wars between the French, British, North Americans and Indians dating back to the 16th and 17th century, but when New Brunswick became a separate colony from Nova Scotia in 1784, the attacks ceased and the area became a more peaceful place. Land grants were given to new residents, which resulted in an increase in population and the construction of government and residential buildings.

Although the city was primarily oriented towards the lumber industry in the 19th and early 20th century, the centralization of the provincial government functions that took place in 1960 shifted the main economy towards the public sector. This caused the city’s population to increase significantly, and the construction of the University of New Brunswick along with the Fredericton campus of Saint Thomas University brought in many students to the area. As a result of the presence of universities, Fredericton has not faced many challenges resulting from the shutdown of mining and fishing companies and is one of the few Atlantic Canadian cities that has reported a population increase in the past few years. The city has invested significantly in the IT infrastructure and has become one of Canada’s top 7 Intelligent Communities.

Fredericton falls under the humid continental climate, so you can be prepared for cold winters, mild summers, and long lasting snowfalls. Spring is one of the riskier weather seasons in the city, as the river often floods during the spring months, putting many of the low-lying neighbourhoods at risk. 

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Fredericton’s downtown core. Good options include Woodstock, and Nashwaaksis. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Hanwell/Kingsclear, New Maryland and Southwood are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.
