Saint John’s economy encompasses a variety of sectors that range from large-scale industrial, to entrepreneurial small business—all driving our economy forward.

From our manufacturing and industrial fabrication sector, which includes Canada’s largest oil refinery, to the recently established health and life sciences cluster at Tucker Park, and the robust ICT community at the heart of our Heritage Knowledge Park, Saint John hosts a variety of traditional and leading-edge sectors that benefit from and help sustain our large professional services and customer services workforce.

Our year-round deep water port has played a crucial role in establishing a thriving pulp and paper industry here, and it’s the reason why Saint John remains a key port on the Eastern Seaboard.  To learn more about our primary sectors and related major projects, please click on the relevant fact sheets:
