Around the Block is Saint John’s community newspaper, published six times annually by the Saint John Human Development Council with principal sponsorship from the City of Saint John. Since the first issue in 2008 ATB has been the voice of our priority neighbourhoods, celebrating their good news, providing information, and offering advocacy. These communities often send in stories written by the residents themselves. This newspaper is theirs; we encourage them to write in their own voices. You will also read stories from the many partners who help support our neighbourhoods with their programs, and special election inserts encouraging citizen participation.
