Charlo (2011 population: 1,324) is a Canadian village in Restigouche County, New Brunswick.[3]

History[edit]

Situated on the south shore of Chaleur Bay, the community was first settled by Acadians in 1799 (except for the Thompson family who emigrated from Ireland through the port of New York who settled 1784-1790 and was granted land by the crown in 1824 next to the church property) and incorporated in 1966. River Charlo is one of its neighbourhoods.

The Charlo Airport, the only airport in the region, offered scheduled air service between 1963-2001. In October 2012, Provincial Airlines began trial flights at the Charlo Airport.[4] In January 2013, after deeming that there was sufficient demand, they made the trial flights permanent. They currently provide direct flights between Charlo, New Brunswick and Wabush, Newfoundland and Halifax, Nova Scotia.[5]
