Government of New Brunswick


  1. To coordinate citizen engagement initiatives across government departments and agencies.
  2. To provide advice and support to government departments and agencies on citizen engagement initiatives.
  3. To provide coaching, training, best practices information to government departments and agencies and develop tools for practitioners.


The Citizen Engagement Unit will ensure that the Government’s vision for a New Brunswick where people have more say over the decisions in their lives is achieved.  Meaningful Citizen engagement can take the form of information sharing, consulting to get public feedback, working directly with citizens to deliberate their ideas and ensure their concerns are understood and considered, collaborating with citizens to reach consensus on alternatives and identification of preferred solutions and finally partnering with citizens in joint decision-making processes where people assume responsibility for shaping their future.
