“The job I want in the community I love”


True Growth 2.0 is an economic and community action plan for the five municipalities in the Saint John region including Grand Bay-Westfield, Quispamsis, Rothesay, Saint John and St. Martins. Its goal is to create a community where people, ideas and investments can thrive. The action plan focuses on six sectors: Health, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Energy, Professional Services and Tourism.


The action plan came together with input from our region’s five municipalities, dozens of community groups and business associations along with 135 volunteer community leaders who designed the action plans around each of the sectors.


The plan recognizes that we need to be a community whose organizations and people work together to focus on opportunities and strengths so that we can all be successful for the long run


This is done by engaging as many people as possible – from the five municipalities, members of organizations and associations, including the Saint John Board of Trade, elected officials and our own citizens; everyone is playing a part in building our community

Our message to our members is get to know True Growth – understand the vision and understand the plan. Everyone can be a champion – sharing good news both in and outside our community and giving constructive feedback to the network. There are tons of projects underway right now and everyone is encouraged to get involved in something that you feel passionate about
