Why You’ll Love It Here
Sackville effortlessly blends small town charm with big doses of natural wonder and vibrant cultural experiences (not to mention very, very short commutes to work.)
From midnight markets teeming with the works of local artisans to music festivals in the park, you’ll have no trouble planning a fun night out or a weekend getaway packed with outdoor adventures, all within minutes of your doorstep.
Living in Sackville
Nestled between city life, the world famous Bay of Fundy, and the warmest saltwater beach north of Virginia, Sackville invites you to live a life that’s as relaxed or as busy as you make it. Home to Mount Allison University (one of Canada’s top undergraduate universities) Sackville is as popular for its cute cafes and bustling breweries as it is for its award-winning Waterfowl Park.
Gone are your days of commuting for hours to get to and from work - everything here is a short walk, bike ride or drive away (which is probably why we won the 2021 Participaction Challenge for most active community in NB). Being part of the Tantramar region means there’s always something to explore and places like Moncton, francophone village Memramcook, and Nova Scotia are in close proximity, putting a ton of extra amenities (from French-first schools and childcare to job and educational opportunities for family members) and fun road trip opportunities close at hand.
Regardless of how you like to spend your time, there’s one thing you’re sure to encounter wherever you go: a warm, East Coast welcome. Living in a close-knit community means you’ll never feel lost in a crowd and a friendly wave or nod from a neighbour is guaranteed.
