The provincial government is investing up to $500,000 to support outfitters in the province through the NB Fish & Hunt Promotion. Participating outfitters will receive a 20 per cent rebate on all hunting and fishing packages they sell to New Brunswick residents, allowing them to offset their prices.
Outfitters across the province struggled significantly this past year with the loss of lucrative business from outdoors enthusiasts who often travel to New Brunswick for hunting and fishing experiences.
Outfitters provide a valuable service within the hunting and fishing industry in New Brunswick, including access to bear and salmon which are highly sought-after species.
All experiences must take place between April 15 and July 15 and include at least two nights of accommodations.
More information about the program is available online.
