"We as a company decided to set up shop in Cumberland County because of its ideal central location for us to service our markets in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia." - Mark Beal, CEO Maritime Pride Eggs
A growing number of industry-leading companies have learned that the world is at their doorstep with our strategic location in the centre of the Maritimes.
Cumberland County is the distribution centre of Atlantic Canada offering a fully digital telecommunications network. We are directly adjacent to the Trans Canada Highway, on the main CN rail line; and in the corridor to both air and sea links.
We’re within 45 minutes of Moncton, N.B; just over one hour from Charlottetown PEI and 2 hours from Halifax. From both Moncton International Airport and the Robert L. Stanfield International Airport in Halifax, you’re only an hour out of Boston and two hours from Toronto or New York.
Recent research has shown that in addition to our geography, Cumberland County scores relatively high in factors that are normally associated with a low cost of doing business while at the same time offering recognized factors associated with a high quality of life.
Cumberland County has one post-secondary institution with a campus of the Nova Scotia Community College located in Springhill and a Community Learning Centre in Amherst. One of Canada’s premiere universities, Mount Allison University, is just minutes away in Sackville, New Brunswick. Amherst has a modern state-of-the-art regional acute-care health care facility offering a wide range of programs and services.
