Saint John New Brunswick
Saint John is a seaport city of the Atlantic Ocean located on the Bay of Fundy in the province of New Brunswick, Canada. Saint John is the oldest incorporated city in Canada, developed by royal charter on May 18, 1785, throughout the reign of King George III. The port is Canada’s third-largest port by tonnage with a cargo base that includes dry and liquid bulk, breakbulk, containers, and cruise. Historically New Brunswick’s largest city, the city fell to second place, with a population of 67,500. Greater Saint John covers an acreage throughout the Caledonia Highlands, with a growing population of 127,000.
French colonist Samuel de Champlain landed at Saint John Harbour on June 24, 1604 (the banquet of St. John the Baptist) and is where the Saint John River gets its name although Mi’kmaq and Maliseet peoples lived in the area for countless years prior calling the river Wolastoq. The Saint John location was an essential location for trade and defense for Acadia during the French colonial period, and Fort La Tour, in the city’s harbor, was an essential battleground throughout the Acadian Civil War.
After over a century of ownership disputes over the land surrounding Saint John between the English and French, the English deported the French colonists in 1755 and built Fort Howe above the harbor in 1779. In 1785, the City of Saint John was developed by joining the two towns of Parrtown and Carleton on each side of the harbor after the arrival of thousands of refugees from the American Revolution who wished to stay British and were required to leave their U.S. homes. Over the next century, waves of immigration via Partridge Island, especially during the Great Famine, would basically alter the city’s demographics and culture.
