Snowmobile Clubs in New Brunswick

Six member clubs of the New Brunswick Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (NBFSC) are receiving funding under the Canadian Experiences Fund – Innovative Communities Fund to upgrade grooming equipment. These investments will enhance maintenance capacity for the province-wide network of snowmobile trails. Snowmobile tourism is a key economic generator for New Brunswick and supports the NB Tourism Growth Strategy, ACOA’s Innovation Action Plan, and the Atlantic Growth Strategy.

The following six member clubs will receive financial support from ACOA and the Province of New Brunswick:

·         Club de Motoneige de Kedgwick Inc. maintains approximately 130 kilometres of trails and logged 852 hours of grooming in 2018.
