Saint-Léolin (2011 pop.: 684)[1] is a Canadian village in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. The Village is located on the Acadian Peninsula.


History[edit]

The first settler to the village was Joseph Bertin in the early 19th century. The village was originally named Saint-Joseph, but changed in 1904 to avoid confusion with another Saint-Joseph near Memramcook.

The village was incorporated in 1978.
