A cozy little urban community hugged by the winding Saint John river.




Fredericton is the capital city of New Brunswick, and life here is unsurprisingly dominated by the presence of the powerful Saint John River. No surprise, the river is home to rowing, kayaking, and just playing around. Known for its Historic Garrison District, an 18th-century British army base now home to a Changing of the Guard ceremony, Fredericton is also home to artists’ studios, an outdoor theatre, and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s Canadian and international collections.

Meet one of our passionate Fredericton residents

Fredericton is a fantastic place to complete Family Medicine Residency. Our support staff are incredible. Our site director and site administrator are extremely approachable and always willing to help out with any problem no matter how big or small it is.
We are also a fairly small site which means that there is little to no competition with other residents for learning opportunities. The attending’s are enthusiastic teachers who are passionate about mentoring the next generation of community family physicians. 
Being a small site also means that you form close relationships with your fellow residents. Fredericton is a place where you will create lasting relationships and want to set down roots.
