New fire hall for Grand-Bouctouche

The newly formed municipality of Grand-Bouctouche is getting a new fire hall.

During a visit to the community on Monday, Beausejour MP Dominic LeBlanc, minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, announced $890,000 as Ottawa’s commitment toward the cost of the project.

“Firefighting is the very definition of an essential service. Through this partnership with the Government of New Brunswick, we’re giving Grand-Bouctouche’s firefighters the tools they need to continue to keep their neighbours safe,” noted LeBlanc.

The new $3 million fire station will replace the existing fire hall and will be built with four additional bays to provide enhanced fire services to the former Town of Bouctouche, Tjipogtotjg (Buctouche) First Nation and five former local service districts.

The federal component is through the Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF), a permanent source of funding provided to provinces and territories which flow this funding to local governments to support infrastructure priorities.

“Fire halls and firefighters are an invaluable part of a community. Firefighters take risks each time they suit up and having a modern station is a crucial part to their success. Knowing we give each member who serves their community a better base of operations to best help those in need is something to be proud of,” said Daniel Allain, provincial Local Government and Local Governance Reform minister.

“We are very pleased with the partnership between the federal, provincial and municipal governments on the new Grand-Bouctouche fire station project,” said Aldéo Saulnier, Grand-Bouctouche mayor.
