Saint Andrews, NB or St. Andrews By-the-Sea as it is commonly called was founded in 1783 by the United Empire Loyalists. This little seaside Town is well preserved with many of the original buildings still gracing the Town Plat. Some of these buildings were barged to the area from Castine, Maine at the end of the Revolutionary War and are listed under the New Brunswick and Canadian Registry of Historic Places.
Throughout the decades Saint Andrews has welcomed visitors from all corners of the earth. Currently, the population is around 1800 year round and significantly increases in the summer.
Today, Saint Andrews represents one of the best preserved examples of colonial heritage in North America. While maintaining its charm, Saint Andrews is also a dynamic, prosperous community. Small town values and friendly neighbours mix easily with a spirited business environment. For the residents of Saint Andrews, life is indeed charmed.
Welcome to Saint Andrews, NB!

GOVERNMENT OF NB RABIES PROGRAM 2016
Please find below some information about the 2016 Rabies Program, which is actually the followup to the bait drops that were done on the outskirts of town in 2015.
There have been no recent reported cases of Rabies in Saint Andrews and the GNB hopes to keep it that way by doing follow up vaccinations. They plan on doing physical hand drops here in town in early August. The air drops in the outskirts of town will be done in late August.
Again, this process is to ensure that there is no rabies outbreak in town. The province would also like to note that the vaccination does not work on dogs and cats and they strongly urge that you still have your pets kept up-to-date by a veterinarian with all their vaccinations.
