Bathurst

Like much of the area, Bathurst was the site of 17th century Acadian settlement and later ceded control to the British. It received many immigrants from Scotland and England from the 18th to 20th centuries. Bathurst is situated on Bathurst Harbour, an estuary at the mouth of the Nepisiguit River at the southernmost part of Chaleur Bay. Its economy blossomed after the construction of a rail link to the rest of Canada in 1876.

The Bay of Chaleur is known for the legend of a burning phantom ship, visible in certain light and weather conditions. The stories and sightings have persisted for two centuries.

Of the population of about 12,000, more than 50% speak only French.

Bathurst is one of the smallest markets in the Canadian Hockey League.
