Boost for New Brunswick infrastructure

Canada's federal government is to spend C$5.8 million on upgrades to two federal laboratories in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

The Atlantic Forestry Centre will receive C$4.8m for upgrades including a new roof. The Acadia Research Forest will receive C$1m to install a facility to calibrate equipment in the national geomagnetic observatory network that monitors, forecasts and reports on the Earth’s magnetic field and on space weather.

“Today’s investment in science and infrastructure upgrades is welcome news for scientific research and jobs here in Fredericton. Our government is once again demonstrating its commitment to supporting economic growth across Canada,” said Greg Rickford, the country’s minister for natural resources.
