Blacks Harbour

Blacks Harbour (2011 population: 982) is a Canadian village in Charlotte County, New Brunswick.

Referred to simply as Blacks by locals, the village is situated on a harbour of the same name opening onto the Bay of Fundy. It is situated 15 kilometres southeast of the town of St. George, 3 kilometres west of the neighbouring community of Beaver Harbour and 56 kilometres east from the town of St. Stephen on Route 176.

Blacks Harbour is the northern terminus for the year-round ferry service to Grand Manan Island. This 32 kilometre ferry trip is provided by Coastal Transport Limited and operated to the port of North Head on Grand Manan Island.

Fishing has been a vital part of its existence for over two hundred years. Connors Brothers Limited was founded in 1885 at Blacks Harbour, now a major international processor of all types of seafood. The company is also a major New Brunswick employer.
