CANADA is committed to working with provinces and territories to grow the economy while meeting climate commitments and creating jobs in communities across the country.

The Honourable Ginette Petipas-Taylor, Minister of Health, and Serge Rouselle, Minister of Environment and Local Government from the Government of New Brunswick, announced the province will receive nearly $51 million through the Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund for programs that help New Brunswickers save money and energy, while supporting the province's climate objectives.

The funding is a component of the Low Carbon Economy Fund, designed to spur clean growth and cut carbon pollution while promoting innovative climate solutions. Up to $234 million will be invested in energy efficiency by the Government of Canada, the Government of New Brunswick, and NB Power over the next five years.

The Government of Canada's Low Carbon Economy Fund is designed to create jobs, produce healthier communities, and help citizens save money. By building on provincial and territorial leadership, the Low Carbon Economy Fund is planned to help meet Canada's commitment under the Paris Agreement and achieve our 2030 national climate target.

The Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund will be used to help save costs for New Brunswickers through energy efficiency programming for households, businesses, and industry.

In addition to New Brunswick, the Government of Canada have also announced news regarding the Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund with the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Québec and Nova Scotia.
