Beaverbrook (officially Beaver Brook Station) is a community (unincorporated area) in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. Beaverbrook lies approximately 15 km north of Miramichi. [Geographical Names of Canada]

Max Aitken grew up in the nearby community of Newcastle, New Brunswick. In accepting his peerage, Max Aitken chose the name Lord Beaverbrook in reference to this community (after initially considering the harder to pronounce "Lord Miramichi").
