Saint John is the largest city in New Brunswick, Canada, and the 2nd largest in the Maritime provinces. Saint John is known widely as the Fundy City because of its location on the north shore of Bay of Fundy at the mouth of Saint John River, as well as being the sole city on the bay. In 1785, it became the first incorporated city in Canada. In 2011, Saint John had a population of around 70,000 over an area of 316 square kilometres (122 ml2). Saint John metropolitan area features a land area of 3,363 square kilometres (1,298 ml2) across the Caledonia Highlands, and a population of nearly 128,000.
Saint John has a long shipbuilding history at city's dry dock which is one of the world's largest. Until the first decade of the 21st century, the largest shipyard in Canada, Irving Shipbuilding, was an important employer. During the 1980s-1990s the shipyard built for the Canadian Navy 9 of 12 Halifax-class multi-purpose patrol frigates. However, it failed to buckle to Union pressure and stopped production.
Prior to the opening of Saint Lawrence Seaway during the late 1950s, Port of Saint John functioned as winter port for Montreal when shipping was unable to traverse sea ice in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and Saint Lawrence River. In 1889 the Canadian Pacific Railway opened a line from Montreal to Saint John across the state of Maine and the majority of its trans-Atlantic passenger and cargo shipping was transferred to the port during winter months. The Port of Saint John fell into decline after the seaway opening and the beginning of year-round icebreaker services during the 1960s. In 1994 the Canadian Pacific Railway left Saint John when it sold the line to New Brunswick Southern Railway.
As the city of Saint John moves away from industrial past, today it begins to capitalize on other new growing economies of tourism, having more than 1.5 million visitors per year and 200,000 cruise ship passengers per year, creating a renaissance in city's historic downtown ("uptown") with plenty of small businesses moving in and waterfront developments underway like the Fundy Quay being hotel, office, condo space along with Three Sisters Harbour front condos and Saint John Law Courts.
