Description This mainly rural riding abuts Quebec on the north and runs from the U.S. border to Baie des Chaleurs in the east. It includes the communities of Campbellton, Saint-Jacques and Edmundston, as well as the shipping port of Dalhousie.

Of the 65,877 residents counted in the 2001 census, more than 80 per cent are francophone; just two per cent are immigrants.

The economy here is diverse, and depends mainly on manufacturing, retail, health and social services. The pulp and paper industry is also important. Unemployment is 14.4 per cent and the average family income is $47,326.

This riding was formed in 1996 by combining portions of the old Madawaska-Victoria and Restigouche-Chaleur ridings. In the 2004 redistribution, the riding lost a handful of residents to Miramichi.

Population: 65,877
