The Town of Canaan is a picturesque community located on the Connecticut River in Northeastern Vermont. It is bordered by New Hampshire and Quebec and many consider it to be the "real" Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
Canaan is a great place to live, work and visit. Its current population of 972 is primarily employed in the tourist and logging industries. During its 225 year history, Canaan has provided its inhabitants with superb water and sewer service, roads, schools, libraries and recreational and cultural activities.
People in Canaan take pride in their independent nature and "can do" attitude. The myriad of activities (moose festival, softball tournaments, sugar on snow social, fall festival, art in the park exhibit, historical society, parades, variety shows, dances, American Legion functions, church suppers, etc.) conducted by members of the community demonstrate that given a task they will successfully carry it out with a high degree of confidence and professionalism.
