About

Ministers Island represents the last significant vestige of Sir William Van Horne, the driving force behind the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway which unified Canada coast to coast. Purchased by the Province of New Brunswick in 1982, this jewel of Canada’s heritage remains the property of the people of this province.

The Van Horne Estate on Ministers Island Inc. (VHEMI) is a group of local citizens who, realizing the treasure which they have in their proximity, have taken on the task of preserving this heritage and in turn increasing its value through extensive renovation and restoration projects.
