A Message From Our Mayor

Welcome to the Village of Chipman, located on the banks of the Salmon River, and at the head of Grand Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the Maritime Provinces.

Chipman maintains a peaceful, rural setting while offering year-round recreation, community events, and easy access to all needed services.

Historically, Chipman's industrial base was grounded in forestry, coal and brick. The tradition continues with the ultra-modern facilities of J.D. Irving Woodlands Ltd. and Grand Lake Timber Ltd, which process much of the abundant local timber, which is still the main focus of the area's economy.

Chipman is centrally located, a hub to the major cities of Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and Miramichi.

But what makes it really special is its fine people and outstanding community spirit.

On behalf of myself and the Chipman Village Council, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our official website. Browse around, read the News and Notices, find what you need in the Directory, check out the Events Calendar and the local Real Estate, enjoy our Photo Albums -- we will be adding new content to the site regularly, so bookmark it and come back often.

If you have any suggestions or comments, let us know by filling out our contact form. We look forward to hearing from you.

Mayor Edward Farris

Dear Mayor Farris,

My husband Joseph and I were privileged to visit Chipman in July this year at the invitation of the family of our daughter-in-law...

From the very first day, we noticed that the people of Chipman were very welcoming and, as time wore on, our first impression of the friendliness of the townspeople became our lasting impression.

It was a real honour for Marlene to accept the invitation to assist with the judging of the Children's Parade during the Chipman Festival. This was a real pleasure and great fun.


Thanks again for helping to make our first, and not our last I am sure, visit to your town.

(Dr.) Joseph and Marlene Christopher
Warwick, Bermuda
