Dec. 20, 2018 – Two Indigenous forestry projects in New Brunswick have received $295,000 in funding from the federal government.
According to a news release, Tobique First Nation will receive $255,000 over multiple years to establish a forest-based community business that will create jobs and increase revenue in the community. So far, the funds have supported a detailed analysis of Tobique’s manufacturing options, which led to the purchase of a sawmill in Perth-Andover, N.B. The next phase of funding will help establish standard operating procedures at the mill, training in grading and stamping lumber, and management succession planning.
