The Village of Chipman is located on the banks of the Salmon River, at the head of Grand Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the Maritime Provinces. It is centrally located, a hub to the major cities of Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and Miramichi.
Chipman maintains a peaceful, rural setting while offering year-round recreation, community events, and easy access to all needed services.
Historically, Chipman’s industrial base was grounded in forestry, coal and brick. The tradition continues with the ultra-modern facilities of J.D. Irving Woodlands Ltd. and Grand Lake Timber Ltd, which process much of the abundant local timber, which is still the main focus of the area’s economy.
But what makes it really special is its fine people and outstanding community spirit. Citizens work hard to actualize their vision: “Chipman is a diverse, vibrant community committed to growth and development where all ages may learn, work, play and live in an engaging environment.”
