Discover Caraquet!


On behalf of the municipality and on my own behalf, I would like to welcome you to our Web site, a virtual “door” to our beautiful town.
As you will see by browsing through the pages on our site, Caraquet is in a league of its own. We were named Cultural Capital of Canada in 2003 and again in 2009. Our shops have something for everyone. Many different species of fish are landed at our bustling seaport. And those are just a few of the things that make Caraquet stand out.

Kevin Haché
Mayor of Caraquet

The sea, our artists, our convivial nature, the hospitality of our people, our major attractions, and our many festivals—mirroring the bright colours of the Acadian flag—will make your stay here a memorable one.
Visitors, come see us and experience all of the natural, cultural and economic wonders that our beautiful region has to offer. Come experience Acadia!

Investors, have we got the ticket for you! Your business plans stand every chance of success thanks not only to our outstanding facilities such as our industrial park, but also to our access to the sea and future Route 11 link.

Fellow citizens, I hope that in visiting our Web site, you will get a clearer picture of everything Caraquet has to offer and will find the answers to your questions about the municipality.
