Services for the Citizens
The Acadian Peninsula Regional Service Commission was recently given the responsibility for the dog control service. This service includes, among other things, the enforcement of regulations, the picking of stray dogs and their care. The service may vary depending on municipality because of the different regulations in force. We encourage you to be familiar with the dog control regulations in your community.
More information on the Acadian Peninsula Regional Service Commission website.
The engineering department is responsible for new construction, painting of road lines, street lighting, land surveying and mapping, infrastructure planning, buildings, inspections, paving, heating, electricity, and sidewalks.
Since 2004, the firefighters of the Town of Caraquet and the Village of Bas-Caraquet have merged their brigades to maximize the efficiency of the services offered to the population and to share equipment. The fire station is located directly on St-Pierre Boulevard, at the very heart of the main street.
The Public Works team of the Town of Caraquet offers a range of services, like snow removal as well as the construction and maintenance of water and sanitation networks. In addition to these responsibilities, the team is responsible for the maintenance of fire hydrants, the mechanical inspection of equipment, streets sweeping, the maintenance of storm sewers, and the cleaning of green spaces.
Caraquet is a very safe city thanks to the services of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a fire department provided by volunteer firefighters, a system of emergency measures organization, and the 911 services.
Urban planning in the Acadian Peninsula is governed by the Urban Planning Department of the The Acadian Peninsula Regional Service Commission. You will find on their website a lot of information concerning the City of Caraquet.
The household waste collection takes place every 2 weeks on Tuesday. It is done alternately with the collection of recyclable materials (blue bin). If the garbage is not picked up on statutory holidays, it will be picked up the next business day.

The Town of Caraquet wants to eliminate clandestine dumps in forested areas and help citizens to get rid of bulky materials locally without having to wait for regular collection.
This service is strictly for the use of Caraquet citizens for waste generated in the context of domestic and non-profit activities.
Contractors carrying out renovations must rent containers for this purpose or transport their waste to the Waste Treatment Center in Tracadie.
The Écocentre is now closed for the winter.
