National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week

National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week from April 18-24

We are working together with Canada’s organ and tissue donation & transplantation community during the month of April to inspire New Brunswickers and all Canadians to register their intent to donate and talk to those closest to them about their decision to donate.

We are conducting a survey to determine if our citizens have access to high-speed Internet and where an improvement in this service is required.

We are asking for 2 minutes of your time to answer three easy questions to help us collect information in order to help you.


211 NB Service

New Brunswickers can call 2-1-1 and trained staff will work to connect callers with services for both everyday needs and times of crisis.
The service is now fully active, providing information and referral services 24 hours a day, every day.


Dear Residents of Restigouche:


Restigouche is in a critical situation with the COVID-19 outbreak.


All the mayors and local service district representatives in Restigouche, are joining the Province of New Brunswick to ask the population to closely follow the Public Health guidelines:

  • Wear a mask in all public places and workplaces AND maintain a distance of 6 feet
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Keep your contacts to a minimum (one bubble)


Your BUBBLE consists of the people who live in YOUR household!


The purpose of adding to the bubble is to guard against mental health issues for someone who lives alone, or to ensure someone who need care is able to receive it. This measure is not intended to mean that all family members including adult siblings, parents, etc. can gather as one family unit. By following the guidelines, we can restore the situation more quickly.



Mask Mandatory

Masks are mandatory in all indoor and outdoor public spaces.
Please wear your mask in our Municipal Offices, playgrounds, and any other municipal establishments.
See the link below for more information on how to manipulate your mask.



Hello Citizens,

As Deputy Mayor, I officially started my tasks August 1, 2020. It is with immense pride and great privilege that I accept this great challenge, I commit to working very hard and to listen to our citizens. My short-term vision is certainly to work in close collaboration with the Municipal Council and the entire population of our village, to create solid partnership with various partners either at the regional, Provincial or Federal level; innovation and creativity must be part of our mission. The Village of Eel River Dundee has enormous potential in terms of economic development, recreation, and infrastructure.

I would like to sincerely thank the great contribution of the employees of the Village and its volunteers who ensure the well-being of the municipality every day. By working together, we will make a great difference for our community, each of us has a responsibility towards our beautiful village.

The year 2020 will certainly go down in history with this pandemic, but we must remain positive, and together we will get through this ordeal. To all of you who have made a difference in the daily lives of your family, friends, and the general public, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your great generosity and your dedication.

With the pleasure to meet you all.

Sincerely yours,

Mario Pelletier

Deputy Mayor

Message from the Mayor

Message from the Mayor Denis Savoie regarding his departure at the end of July. We are proud of him and wish him our best regards in his new adventure! Good luck! Here is a message from him:



Life sometimes has surprises in store for us. I looked forward with great enthusiasm to the May 11 elections. I had my advertising materials printed and my support team was in place. Then COVID-19 arrived and changed the plans of many people. In addition, on May 14, I received a call that also changed my plans. I was given an offer that was hard to refuse, yet it
was difficult to accept. We thought about it for a long time as a family, and finally I accepted the challenge of becoming the Executive Director of a 290-employee office in Moncton. Good decisions are not necessarily easy to make. It’s a heartbreaking choice, I leave my community, but I will be closer to my grandchildren, my children and my siblings. I am proud of my record as mayor. If I have been in municipal politics for 19 years, it is thanks to the support of my wife Rachelle. The contribution of Kim and the employees of the municipality greatly facilitated my work. I have always been proud of the work of the fire brigade and chiefs Bujold and Aubé. Following my departure scheduled for the end of July I will leave you in good hands with Councillors Pelletier, Hachey, Savoie and your Deputy Mayor Mario Pelletier. Thank you for your support over the past 19 years.
