Richibucto is a Canadian town in Kent County, New Brunswick.[1]

Geography[edit]

The town is situated on the Richibucto River where it discharges into the Northumberland Strait.

History[edit]

The town takes its name from a Mi'kmaq term meaning "river of fire".[2]

It is believed the term was mispronounced, or misunderstood from the Mi'kmaq language.

Present day[edit]

The downtown area, situated on the mouth of the river, has commercial fishing wharves, several restaurants, and local stores. The economy is dominated by lobster and deep sea fishing.

Demographics[edit]

Attractions[edit]

  • St. Louis de Gonzague Roman Catholic Church was completed in 1965. Designed by Belanger and Roy of Moncton, it was inspired by the designs of the Spanish architect, Félix Candela.[5]
