City Manager's Office

As Canada's oldest incorporated city and New Brunswick's largest municipality, the City of Saint John has been providing municipal services to local citizens for more than two centuries. Operating under a "City Manager form of government", the Corporation offers a wide range of services, as determined and directed by an elected Mayor and Council.

The Mayor and Council have the benefit of receiving independent professional advice from the City Manager on policy issues, from the City Solicitor on legal issues, the Common Clerk on procedural matters and from the Commissioner of Finance on financial issues.  This separate reporting relationship of each of these positions is rather unique in a Canadian setting. However, it does ensure that elected officials receive the best advice possible.
