Campbellton is beautifully situated on the south bank of the Restigouche River, almost at the point where it meets the sea. The City is an entry point to Atlantic Canada from the Province of Quebec and is also the gateway from New Brunswick and the United States to the Gasp√© Peninsula. It is the largest service center in its home county of Restigouche. The earliest settlements to the area contained Scottish, English, French, Irish and Micmac cultural groups. These vibrant people remain to this day a unique mosaic of the Canadian identity.
The city is the undisputed capital of salmon country. Sport fishing enthusiasts literally travel from around the world to this part of New Brunswick in search of Atlantic Salmon. To honour the king of game fish, the City erected an 8.5 meter stainless steel sculpture on its waterfront and lovingly adopted him as "Restigouche Sam".
During the nineteenth century, Bathurst developed as a trade center for the Chaleur Region. Outlying areas developed as farming and fishing communities, dependent on the Village of Bathurst for special services.
During the first half of the 1900s, the pulp and paper industry was the mainstay of the regional economy but mining gradually replaced pulp and paper as the major industry in the area and continues to dominate the local economy. Recent developments, such as the Thermal Power Generating Station in nearby Belledune, have strengthened the regional economy.
Today, the Chaleur Region continues to grow through its human-resource potential and imaginative innovations. A highly skilled and bilingual workforce, along with a beautiful and pristine environment, makes the Chaleur Region and of course Bathurst, the natural place to do business.
The City of Miramichi is a dynamic young city, which was formed through the amalgamation of five municipalities and several rural areas to form the new City of Miramichi in 1995. Its population of over 18000 makes it the fifth largest in New Brunswick. Since the City was formed in 1995, over $104,000,000 in new construction has occurred. Of this amount, 27% is attributed to new commercial development. Miramichi is a great community to live in and work, with over 22 kilometres of walking/hiking/biking trails, a 500 plus acre multipurpose nature park located in the centre of the city, two indoor pools, two arenas, an 18 hole golf course, two marinas, numerous ball parks, soccer fields, tennis courts, curling club, fitness centres, libraries and museums.
And of course, Miramichi rivals Campbellton for its reputation as the gateway to some of the best salmon fishing in the world!
We appreciate the level of service and attention a local firm provides, and the knowledge that as we grow, they have the backing of the AC Group association to grow with us.
I was in the banking business for 20 years and worked with accounting firms of all types and sizes. When I made a career change 10 years ago one decision that was very easy to make was to use a local CA firm. I had seen first hand the importance of receiving personal, uninterrupted accounting and financial advice.
