Saint John has a history as a hub for business, industry and innovation.
Creativity and ingenuity have always driven the economy of the city. The variable pitch propeller, the cable ferry, and the steam powered foghorn  were invented here.

Today, ICT, knowledge, advanced manufacturing, energy, healthcare and tourism sectors continue to form Saint John's economic base. The City also has five industrial parks and is strategically located as a global multi-modal gateway to the American Northeast through our road, air, rail and port connections. 

This is a city built on business with people in mind. Employers, employees and entrepreneurs alike have easy access to recreation, leisure, retail, affordable housing and the largest transit system in the New Brunswick.

The City of Saint John together with the New Brunswick Department of the Environment launched Sustainable Saint John. Over 45 people representing a cross section of community in the Saint John region work towards reaching one common goal: to bring together government, residents, businesses and community groups to build capacity and momentum for sustainability in our region.

The City has been recognized twice for its own Municipal Energy Efficiency Program (MEEP). The MEEP won a 2008 Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) award in the Energy category. In 2010 The New Brunswick Conservation Council awarded the City’s energy team its Milton Gregg Conservation Award.
