Fredericton enjoys and benefits from unprecedented community support and collaboration across all industry sectors. Volunteer business, government and university representatives have banded together, sitting on sector task forces representing everything from engineering to workforce development to the Knowledge Industry and more.

Recent successes like the leveraging of community-wide efforts to secure the province’s longest runway, a new National Research Council Institute, the province’s only direct connection to the US eastern seaboard, and a new provincial rehabilitation centre have resulted in an even more motivated and integrated community-wide participation in growing a dynamic economy.

Community leaders representing academia, research and development, the knowledge industry, engineering community, manufacturing sector, aerospace and defence, major institutions, healthcare, and more regularly take their turn as members of both the Enterprise Fredericton Board and City of Fredericton.
