A federal funding boost for the tourism industry in New Brunswick.

Officials announced $6.7 million on Friday to support a total of 53 projects.

The money comes from the federal government’s Tourism Relief Fund.

“We have so much to be proud of in our beautiful region, and so much to share with visitors,” Ginette Petitpas Taylor, the minister responsible for ACOA, said in a news release.

“As we launch the tourism season, we are reaffirming the sector’s vital importance to our economy, and are committed to helping tourism businesses and organizations in New Brunswick develop the world-class experiences that make Atlantic Canada such a sought-after destination.”

Petitpas Taylor highlighted a handful of the projects to be funded during Friday’s announcement in Fredericton.

Camping Plage Aboiteau Beach in Cap-Pelé will receive $500,000 for a glamping resort. Salty Towers Inn in Saint Andrews will get just shy of $100,000 for renovations.

In addition, Metepenagiag Heritage Park Inc. in Red Bank will get $500,000 for a modern Indigenous interpretive site.

The funding is in addition to $6.4 million previously announced for 53 New Brunswick businesses.
