Recreation NB is the collective voice for meaningful, quality, accessible and safe recreation in New Brunswick. We strive to create a happier, healthier New Brunswick where all citizens have equitable access to recreation opportunities.
Our Board of Directors
GNB Consultant Department of
Tourism, Heritage & Culture
Recreation NB's Board of Directors is comprised of a volunteer group of 10 individuals representing the recreation and parks field and municipalities from across the province.
As a non-profit organization, our national and provincial partners help make our important work possible. These partnerships allow us to develop and administer programs that provide all New Brunswickers the opportunity to experience recreation, and therefore help build a happier, healthier province.
We offer our members the opportunity to be involved in every facet of our initiatives related to our bottom line, of advancing the recreation and parks field, through various committees. Committee members help formulate and facilitate concrete changes for New Brunswick through a collaborative model. Our wide range of dynamic committees are composed of volunteer members from diverse backgrounds in the recreation field, from various not-for-profit and government sectors.
