RETURNING TO YOUR COMMUNITY
Le Réseau de développement économique et d’employabilité du Nouveau-Brunswick” (RDÉE NB) launched nine short videos to highlight the young people who’ve returned to the region in which they were raised after time a short time away. Rexton’s General Manager, Ashley (Jones) Francis, was a part of this amazing experience. See the links below:

4- Front View of Museum4
Legend says a Chieftain set off to find a River of Fire, a place free of war and sickness. He discovered our river at sunset, ablaze in brilliant red, and settled here. A visit to the Richibucto River Museum will give you the complete story, and tell you of our first settlers, Eastern Canada’s Mi’kmaq First Nation.
