    Gail SheaMinister Shea and MP Goguen Highlight Expanding Seafood Export Industry in Greater Moncton March 27, 2015 - Moncton, New Brunswick The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, and Robert Goguen, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe, spent the day highlighting Greater Moncton’s expanding export industry. After speaking with members of the Moncton Chamber of Commerce about the role of trade in the region, Minister Shea and Mr. Goguen toured the Greater Moncton International Airport to see the products of this growing industry. The recent increase in seafood exports has encouraged Xtreme Cold Ltd to open a new warehouse to accommodate the growing need. Quotes “Canada’s world-class seafood products are heavily sought after around the globe. Our Government recognizes the importance of creating new trade avenues for our local businesses to be able to meet this growing demand. That’s why we have established trade agreements with the European Union and Korea, and more are in Canada’s future.” The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans “I am proud of our city’s continued economic prosperity. The trade agreements our Government have established have encouraged Greater Moncton’s industries to continue to expand. This new warehouse is one of the many ways our city is growing.” Robert Goguen, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe “As President and CEO of Xtreme Cold Ltd., I am very eager to start operations in our new state-of-the-art refrigerated multi-purpose transshipment facility next May and contribute directly in increasing exports of our fish and seafood products from the Maritimes to every corner of the world with our partners at the Greater Moncton International Airport.” Paul Farrah, President & CEO of Xtreme Cold Ltd.

    Gail SheaHarper government invests over $74 million in New Brunswick harbours Minister Shea announces major improvements for fishing harbours across the province Richibucto, New Brunswick The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, joined by Robert Goguen, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe, announced today that the Government of Canada will invest $ 74.3 million over the next two years to improve safety and working conditions for fishermen at harbours in New Brunswick. More than $7.5 million of this total investment will support the following harbour projects: • Botsford – replacement of a deteriorated wharf • Cap-des-Caissie – upgrades to electrical system • Cape Tormentine – replacement of a deteriorated wharf • Cap-Lumière (Richibucto Cape) – repairs to wharf and channel maintenance dredging • Petit-Cap – replacement of a deteriorated wharf • Richibucto – replacement of a barricaded breakwater wharf • Barre-de-Cocagne – repairs to a deteriorated wharf • Cap-de-Saint-Louis – regular maintenance dredging • Chockpish – regular maintenance dredging • Cap-Pelé (Les Aboiteaux) – regular maintenance dredging • Saint-Édouard-de-Kent – regular maintenance dredging of the harbour basin and channel Details on other New Brunswick harbour projects will be announced shortly. Since 2006, the Government of Canada has provided an unprecedented level of funding to support investments in public infrastructure across the country. Last fall, Prime Minister Harper announced an additional investment of $5.8 billion over the next two years to build and renew infrastructure across the country to support Canadian heritage, First Nations education, defence, borders, research, small craft harbours, transportation and search and rescue. As part of this funding, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard will receive a total of approximately $551 million. This includes $288 million for harbour improvements at small craft harbours. Quick Facts • Richibucto Harbour is home port to approximately 90 vessels and approximately 225 fish harvesters use its facilities. • The primary fisheries at Richibucto Harbour are lobster and rock crab. Landings in 2013 represented an estimated value of over $3.6 million. • A total of $6 million has been invested in Richibucto Harbour in the last 10 years. • More than $74 million will be invested in improvement projects at approximately 39 harbours in New Brunswick over the next two years. • The Government of Canada is responsible for more than 1000 small craft harbours across Canada. Harbour improvement projects are undertaken in cooperation with the local harbour authorities that manage and operate facilities for local users. • Small craft harbours support the commercial fishing industry. Nearly 90 percent of all commercial fish harvesters in Canada use small craft harbour facilities, and their annual production represents approximately $1.6 billion. Quotes “For generations, hard-working Canadian men and women have made their livelihood from our waters. Without question, small craft harbours are the cornerstone of the commercial fishing industry. Today’s announcement is part of our Government’s ongoing commitment to support our fishermen and the harbours where they work, local economies and foster job creation.” The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans “Since 2006, our Government has continuously made major investments that create opportunities for Canadians and encourage the prosperity of New Brunswick. We are proud to continue to support the hardworking people of Richibucto, and the other communities benefitting from this investment. As always, we will continue to ensure safe and efficient working conditions for those who earn their livelihood at these harbours.” Robert Goguen, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe “We welcome the federal investment in Richibucto Harbour. We are certainly happy to see the government investing in harbour infrastructure across the region. The investments will contribute significantly to our economy." Cyril Polchies, President of the Richibucto Harbour Authority

    Bernard ValcourtCette année, du 23 au 29 mars, les musées du monde entier unissent leurs efforts pour célébrer la #MuseumWeek. Notre gouvernement croit fermement que l’histoire canadienne est quelque chose dont nous pouvons tous être fiers. D’ailleurs, l’an dernier, au nom du gouvernement du Canada, c’est avec fierté que j’ai annoncé une somme de 107,000$ en appui au Musée historique du Madawaska pour l’exposition intitulé « L’Acadie des terres et forêts; Frontières contestées, Familles retrouvées ». Je vous invite à visiter un musée près de chez vous, à apprendre de vos visites et à renouer avec l’histoire du Canada.
