Pledge Summary

Saint Andrews is, and will continue to be, a dynamic community for residents of all ages and backgrounds; a centre of education and science; a leading year-round destination; and a vibrant home for arts and culture. This vision will be achieved by protecting and promoting our natural environment, our architectural heritage, and our recreational, cultural, and economic assets. The Town of Saint Andrews has committed to saving monarch butterflies, bees, and other pollinators with the signing of the Mayor's Monarch Pledge and looks forward to building pollinator habitats and networks with residents and visitors for our community. Saint Andrews is a community of approximately 3,000 people along the shores of the Passamaquoddy Bay, in southern New Brunswick. Our community consists of the communities of Bayside, Chamcook, and Saint Andrews.
