Whether you are searching for a permanent residence or a vacation destination, the Grand Lake region of New Brunswick is where you need to be! Embraced by a wondrous landscape of waterways, endless forests, and a small town way of life, the Grand Lake region is rural living at its finest.

Located on the northwest shore of Grand Lake, the region is comprised of two distinct villages and several outlying communities. All share a history rich in culture and a landscape shaped by the efforts and determination of new Canadians who arrived centuries ago to work in the mining and forestry industries and who ultimately made the Grand Lake region ‘home’.

As you browse through our website, you will immediately recognize what you have been missing – clean living, a relaxed lifestyle, year-round recreational activities, affordable housing, and all of the amenities of rural New Brunswick. Our Grand Lake region is the land of endless opportunities.

Isn’t it time to discover what living is all about?

The Spruce Budworm Invasion – Prevention is Key

The ‘Healthy Forest Partnership’ is a four-year research initiative introduced in 2014 with the goal of establishing an effective and proactive approach for the detection and treatment of Spruce Budworm populations in New Brunswick before they reach epidemic proportions. With an invasion of Spruce Budworm presently wreaking havoc on the forests of Quebec, the Partnership is determined to develop a method of control that will result in a lesser impact on the forests of our province.

The research is showing success, but the Partnership is concerned that the Federal Government’s financial support of this program may end at the completion of the four-year agreement. Without the additional funding, the early intervention program would be at risk. This means that NB Forests will not be protected from the onslaught of spruce budworm.

You can help protect the woodlands in our province. Click the link below, enter your contact information, and a letter of support will automatically be sent to your MP. https://actforhealthyforests.ca/ 

More information on the Spruce Budworm spray program is available on the Partnership website - http://www.healthyforestpartnership.ca/en/. (Please note the video)
