Located in northern New Brunswick, Canada Edmundston is just across the Saint John river from Madawaska, Maine. Both communities depend on each other as Emdnudston pulp mill producesĀ  the raw material – pulp for Madawaska paper mill. This product is delivered to the US side via a pipeline where it is further processed into high quality paper.
