About My City: Charlotte County

Charlotte County is a rural area in South West NB. It is made up of a number of mainland communities - Saint Stephen, Saint George, Saint Andrews, Blacks Harbour and Beaver Harbour, and three island communities – Deer Island, Grand Manan and Campobello. It is characterized by its coastal nature and relies largely on fishing, aquaculture, tourism and manufacturing for industry.
