About: Hub City Heartbeat

Hub City Heartbeat is an Internet based communications platform architected to enable and enhance the conversation between community content creators (i.e., local businesses and organizations) and interested content consumers (i.e., The Public).

More than just a website, HCH is a philosophy based on inclusiveness. HCH believes that community is best defined holistically, and that participation is driven by the availability and consumability of information. The broader and more complete the picture the better. New Brunswick has a lot to offer.

Relax. We have taken a forward thinking approach that prevents HCH from adding more "I" to your TMI. We want to ensure that the content HCH distributes continues to remain relevant to you. We understand that one size does not fit all. The HCH model is all about you. Please take a moment to pick your channels so HCH can serve you best.
