The Industrial Park and seaport, together with the tourism and SME sectors, are all key links in the Town of Caraquet’s economic development.
Our industrial park is rated “A” by the Province of New Brunswick because of its capacity and the services it offers. It is the only industrial park in the Acadian Peninsula with that rating. Our industrial park has all the features required by companies in different activity sectors.
Our port facilities
Caraquet’s seaport generates significant economic spinoffs in the community.
Did you know that the Caraquet wharf was among the first in Canada to be managed by a port authority, overseeing such things as expansion, user services and mooring fees?
The Port Committee is made up of businesspeople and ensures that all users—plant owners, fishing vessel captains/owners, pleasure boaters—receive appropriate services.
The Caraquet port area includes a very large industry of iinshore, midshore and offshore fishermen who ply their trade there. It is also home to the New Brunswick School of Fisheries, a division of the Acadian Peninsula campus of the Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick. The processing plants and pleasure boaters use the launch ramp during the summer.
