Sackville

The Canadian Town of Sackville in the Province of New Brunswick is located on the beautiful Tantramar Marsh, offering a strategic location and a unique blend of economic, cultural, and lifestyle opportunities. It is situated on the western fringe of the Tantramar Marshes, 8 km west of the interprovincial boundary with Nova Scotia and 45 km from the city of Moncton.

The marshes are one of the largest tidal wetlands in the world. They were once tidal wetlands that have been partially transformed to farmland by dykes first built by the original Acadians settlers of the region in the 17th century. In the centre of the town, an area of the wetlands has been developed and designated as the Sackville Waterfowl Park. The park has many walking trails and boardwalks for wildlife observation.

Small-scale agriculture is carried out in the surrounding area, including dairy farming supported by haying on the marshes. Mount Allison University is located in the town. Historically home to two foundries manufacturing stoves and furnaces, the economy is now driven by the university and tourism.

The town is located on CN's Halifax-Montreal main railway line and the Trans-Canada Highway connecting New Brunswick with Nova Scotia. The Greater Moncton International Airport (YQM) is located about 37 km northwest of the town.
