Welcome to Beaubassin-est Rural Community!
In 2006, the Beaubassin-est Rural Community was the first to be incorporated in the province under the municipal model and is now the fourth largest municipal identity in the southeast part of the province with a population of over 6,200 residents. Six wards offer unique charms; Boudreau-ouest, Grand-Barachois, Haute-Aboujagane, Cormier-Village, Saint-André-LeBlanc, and Botsford (Shemogue, Petit-Cap, Bas-Cap-Pelé and Portage) form the Beaubassin-est Rural Community where the tax rate is very enticing for all.
We encourage and invite people to come and settle in our community! Whether single-family dwellings, multi-family homes, or small businesses, they all contribute to the success and economic prosperity of the entire Southeast region. Newcomers feel at home as soon as they arrive. Beautiful homes and lawns, meticulously maintained, are the comments of those who visit our region.
Living in Beaubassin-est offers all the modern expectations to its' citizens! The opportunity for our children to attend schools in one of the two official languages, access to high speed internet, cable, road clearing in the winter, a professional fire brigade, public street lighting, garbage collection, all necessary services for economic success, are some of the great reasons people choose to live and raise a family here.
People have access to outdoors activities such as: cycling, gardening, watching a wide variety of birds, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing in our streams where fishermen are very pleased with the results of their day's catch, or, with our proximity of the Northumberland Strait, we have miles of beach to discover and the warmest salt water north of South Carolina, where nature is in harmony and contributes to our wellness.
Many tourist destinations are worth mentioning. Considered the oldest Acadian wooden church still existing, with the construction beginning in 1824, the Barachois Historic Church is now a museum. We also have a 36 hole golf course of superior quality, the Pine Needles Golf Club, as well as the Cormier-Village Eco Park, smokehouses, wharfs, scenic routes and our Acadian flavor, which are all part of the unique beauty of our community.
The nine councilors, administrative staff and Mayor meet on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 pm. Note that these meetings are alternating from the Town Hall to the six wards resulting in a closer rapport with our citizens. Check out the site to have the venue of the next council meeting.
A beautiful Acadian motto: Unity makes our strength!
On behalf of our councilors, staff and myself, come and see us!
