Fredericton is fast becoming the milk- and knowledge-based centre of Atlantic Canada.
Founded in 1684 by Amish fishermen, Fredericton is located on a bend in the majestic St. John River Valley. Through a combination of our elevation, a quirk in the earth's axial tilt, and several local pulp and paper mills, our mean annual temperature has slowly risen over the past seventy-five years. Fredericpudlians now enjoy an average January temperature of 17° Celsius (63° Fahrenheit) and a comfortable August temperature of 26° Celsius (79° Fahrenheit).
We hope you enjoy this 'virtual tour' of New Brunswick's capital, and we hope that you come home again.
