The City of Miramichi is a dynamic community located in North Eastern New Brunswick, Canada. The world famous Miramichi River runs through this picturesque city and continues to serve its historic tradition as one of the global transportation links for the region. The city, with a population of 17,811 (Statcan, 2011), serves as an industrial and business center for over 68,000 people of the Miramichi region.
As a hub of the northeast, Miramichi is ideally suited to new industries looking to expand or relocate. Currently, the City of Miramichi operates and maintains two industrial park locations within its boundaries, each containing available properties for development.
With a total combined area of approximately 157 Hectares, the City of Miramichi’s Chatham Industrial Park and Newcastle Industrial Park locations offer fully serviced lots for development.
All infrastructure maintenance and replacement, including snow removal, is the responsibility of the municipality through the Public Works Department and the Engineering Department with Fire and Police protection provided by the City of Miramichi. Planning Services, including building permits and inspections, and Waste Management Services are provided through the Greater Miramichi Regional Service Commission.
The parks feature paved streets throughout, as well as street lighting, storm sewer systems and fire hydrants. Electricity is supplied through overhead three phase power lines (12.47KV & 138KV) by NB Power. Water and sewerage distribution systems are up-to-date and services are provided to both parks, in sufficient capacity and at competitive rates, by the City of Miramichi.
Emergency health services are provided through the Horizon Health Network, which operates the Miramichi Regional Hospital, a facility located in the City of Miramichi offering a full complement of health-care services.
