Across the province of New Brunswick, local infrastructure improvements are being made possible through the Gas Tax Fund.
The Fund is the payment program under the Canada-New Brunswick Agreement on the Transfer of Federal Gas Tax Revenues and, in Phase I, the Provincial Gas Tax Transfer Top-up Fund.
Over $324 million invested towards projects in New Brunswick over a nine-year period for environmentally sustainable infrastructure in municipal and unincorporated areas of the province. These investments will result in environmental benefits such as cleaner air, cleaner water and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, as outlined in the New Brunswick Gas Tax Fund Outcomes Report.
