Edmundston (2006 population: 16,643) is a Canadian city in Madawaska County, New Brunswick.
It is located at the edge of the New Brunswick "pan handle" at the junction of the Saint John and Madawaska Rivers in the northwestern part of the province.
Edmunston is strategically situated only a few kilometers from the border with Quebec and on the border with the United States, opposite the town of Madawaska, Maine, to which it is connected by the Edmunston-Madawaska Bridge.
The city is 98 per cent francophone, the highest of all cities in the province. Edmunston is also the largest majority-francophone city in North America outside Quebec with Clarence-Rockland, Ontario being second with 68 per cent francophone. There are higher numbers of francophone's in other Canadian cities such as Ottawa (122,665), Sudbury (45,420), Toronto (34,900), Winnipeg (26,855), Moncton (20,425) and Timmins (17,390), but French speakers in these cities are a minority. Forestry is one of the city's major industries, with several sawmills and paper plants in the vicinity, the largest being the Fraser pulp mill. The Edmunston pulp mill is paired with a Fraser paper mill directly across the Saint John River in Madawaska, Maine, through which liquefied pulp slurry is piped - the only such installation anywhere along the Canada-United States border. Sign and plastics manufacturing are also important to the city's economy.
