The Town of St. Anthony was incorporated in 1945 as a small fishing town and has since grown to a population of 2,500 people.
The population of St. Anthony peaked in 1992 at which time we had seen the collapse of the cod fishery. It has since remained constant. The lack of decline can be attributed to the hard work of local citizens who stepped forward and became municipal politicians in the running of our Town.
