Meductic is a small village located along the Saint John River in southern New Brunswick, approximately 33 kilometers southeast of Woodstock. Meductic's mayor is Lance Royden Graham.[1]

History[edit]

During the Expulsion of the Acadians, the village was burned in the St. John River Campaign (1758).

Demographics[edit]

In the 2011 Census, Statistics Canada originally reported that the Village of Meductic had a population of 270 living in 107 of its 125 total dwellings, a 74.2% change from its 2006 population of 155.[2] Statistics Canada subsequently amended the 2011 census results to a population of 228 living in 89 of its 96 total dwellings, a 47.1% change from 2006.[3] With a land area of 5.57 km2 (2.15 sq mi), it had a population density of 40.93/km2 (106.0/sq mi) in 2011.[2][3]

Today[edit]

Today Meductic is home to a few quaint businesses including a bed and breakfast and gas station. A long time restaurant closed its doors in 2004 after the opening of the new 4-lane Trans-Canada Highway, which caused a dramatic drop in traffic on what is now Route 165.[citation needed] Sabian Cymbals Limited, a Meductic business, is well known on the international music scene as a supplier of finely crafted cymbals. Sabian is a major employer in the area, creating jobs for many people.[citation needed]
