Quispamsis is in New Brunswick.

Understand[edit]

Quispamsis is a small (17,000) bedroom community located 20 kilometers north of Saint John. Its population is dominated by middle-class Caucasian families, though immigration is increasing and there is a slowly emerging visible Korean minority.

Daily life in Quispamsis is much like what would be seen in a typical movie involving a family living in a typical suburb. Residents are used to little change, though the recent influx of immigration has led to the opening of various new restaurants and businesses that are piquing the locals' interests in foreign culture. An exception to this rule would be the towns large elderly population, which remains very traditional in their values and remains largely reluctant to change.

The most common language spoken in Quispamsis is English, though French is spoken either natively or as a second language by a significant percentage of the population, as French immersion is offered at most schools in the town beginning in either grade 1 or grade 6.

Get in[edit]

Quispamsis is served by one highway (Highway 1) and can be accessed from either Saint John or Moncton. Additionally, a complimentary car ferry allows entry from Kingston Peninsula.

Quispamsis is served by the Saint John Regional Airport. The airport is served by only one airline (Air Canada Express) year-round, which offers multiple daily flights to and from Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. In the summer, charter airlines such as Sunwing also offer limited flights to destinations in the Caribbean.

Get around[edit]

Due to the relatively small size of the town, walking is possible and you will commonly see people walking around the town for pleasure, but personal automobiles are by far the most popular means of travel for residents. Public transportation is extremely limited, with the Comex bus services offering fewer than 6 rides per day.

Taxis are also available, but you must call them to come pick you up; they will never be seen in the streets unless they are already serving a customer. Taxi driver's are very friendly and will not try to rip of foreigners, however taxi fares are generally very high and thus they are seldom used by locals. If you're going to be driving around a lot, it is advisable to simply rent a car.
