About Develop Saint John

At Develop Saint John, we’re focused on one thing: encouraging strategic real estate development and growing the tax base in the community by relentlessly creating and seizing strategic real estate opportunities and getting deals done.

On January 1, 2021, Develop Saint John became part of the New Regional Economic Development Agency for Greater Saint John, an integrated, coordinated, and regional approach to economic development, population growth, infrastructure development, and tourism. We will be transitioning to the new organization over the coming months. Stay tuned for further updates.

If you would like more information on the background of the new agency, mandate, and governance, check out our interim website.


We have roots in three longstanding champions of development in Saint John: Saint John Development Corporation, Saint John Industrial Parks, and the City of Saint John’s Real Estate Development Department. We realized we could better promote our community’s real estate opportunities and facilitate investment in development by combining our resources, knowledge, and passion. So that’s what we did.

Now, as Develop Saint John, we offer everything you need to develop your project:  quick approvals, strong connections, and full support. So let’s get started. Right here. And right now.
