Mayor's Message - Robert (Bob) Powell

I welcome you to discover and explore our community. Oromocto is known as “CANADA’S MODEL TOWN”, a progressive and prosperous community developed around Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, one of the largest military training bases in the Commonwealth.                                                                                                                                                         
Oromocto is also known as a community that is deeply rooted with a very diverse culture and heritage. We are nestled along the Oromocto and Saint John Rivers with a population of around 9,000. These pristine waterways are among the finest in North America and offer many recreational opportunities for our residents and visitors alike.

Located on the Trans Canada Highway we are a convenient stop for a day, week or a lifetime.  ALL are welcome to discover and enjoy what we've always known, there is no place like our beautiful Town!
