Edmundston Travel Guide

Situated where the State of Main, the Province of Quebec and the province of New Brunswick all come together, the City of Edmundston is surrounded by the rolling hills of the Appalachian Mountains. It is across a bridge from the town of Madawaska, Maine. Situated on the Madawaska River, and located on the Trans Canada Highway, it has been called the true gateway to the Atlantic region of Canada. Each of the four communities that amalgamated in 1998 to form greater Edmundston have something unique to offer. For instance, Saint-Jacques is at the heart of an important recreational and tourist complex, which includes a ski hill, the New Brunswick Botanical Gardens and the De la République Provincial Park. Cyr House, the Hospitallers’ Convent and a museum showcase Saint-Basile district’s rich past. The city is pedestrian friendly, and exists on both sides of the river. With its deep roots in the formation of a bilingual Canada, and immediately adjacent to the United States, francophone residents exist on both sides of the international border and still refer to themselves as a separate ‘republic’, the Republic of Madawaska.
