Travel Registration and GNB ‘Spot-Checks’

Effective September 25, 2021, at 12:00 a.m., the Government of New Brunswick requires pre-travel registration and proof of vaccination or exemption for travelers entering the province. Community members and residents can expect a spot check in Campbellton, and others along the ‘Quebec and New Brunswick border.’ GNB Staff will be stationed at spot checks throughout the weekend to educate the public on GNB’s latest initiative.

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) does not support registered travel to access our territory. However, we do encourage community members and residents to register and carry proof of vaccination or exemption to ensure that there are no delays in accessing your needs. If you have not yet received your confirmation from GNB, you can provide your emailed registration form, as proof. Please note, some businesses are requiring proof of vaccination upon entry.

If you have experienced mistreatment, harassment, denial of services, refusal of entry and/or access to essential goods and services across the bridge, please write to us at feedback@listuguj.ca or call us at 418-788-2136 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to document your experience.

Curbs and Sidewalks to be Installed Monday September 20th Caplin Road

An important notice that the construction work on Caplin Road will begin the installation of concrete curb and concrete sidewalks as of Monday September 20th, 2021. To complete the preparation and installation of curbs and sidewalks, residents along Caplin Road will temporarily lose access to their driveways.

We ask that all residents on Caplin Road to follow these directions:

  1. Between the hours of 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM during the week, all vehicles must be out of their driveway and parked anywhere else than on Caplin Road. Possible parking locations include all side streets along Caplin Road.
  2. Between the hours of 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM, vehicles can be parked on the West side of Caplin Road along the shoulder/concrete curb.

We understand this will be an inconvenience and we appreciate the patience of the residents of Caplin Road. Having a clear path without any vehicles on Caplin Road will accelerate the curb and sidewalk installation and reduce the amount of time that the construction will affect residents.

Please note that any vehicles that are not moved prior during installation may be stuck up to 5 days until the concrete has cured as required.

An Englobe employee will be always on site to coordinate with homeowners and answer questions. Any special requirements should be communicated to Englobe Employee Stephane Landry at 1-506-260-5095. We will update information once construction activities have concluded and driveway access is no longer impeded.

Access will be restricted to the Alaqsite’w Gitpu School on Thursday September 30th, 2021 to Friday October 1st, 2021 only. For all other days, both access points at AGS will be accessible to all vehicles.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at the numbers below.

Sincerely,

Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government
