Business Assistance, Loans and Financing Help in Northumberland County
Located in the northeast part of the province of New Brunswick and situated on either side of the majestic Miramichi River, the CBDC Northumberland service area consist of the county of Northumberland, with the exception of the Parish of Rogersville, but includes that portion of York County that is included in the Provincial Electoral Constituency of Southwest Miramichi – Bay du Vin. We offer a variety of services to business in the region, including access to loans, financial assistance and many business development programs and resources. The local economy is highly dependent on the dominant industries in the form of health services, government, education and manufacturing. Other major sectors are fisheries and peat moss; however, these two sectors are seasonal. The forestry sector, which once dominated the northeast, has dropped to a meager existence. Recent announcements such as the Canada Payroll Centre that is now under construction in the city of Miramichi will create 500 good-paying jobs. The Government of New Brunswick announcement of its new forest strategy should breathe much needed life back into this sector.
