Community Notice – New Brunswick Travel Registration
September 21, 2021 – Last week, the Government of New Brunswick (GNB) announced they would be implementing new measures across the province. Under their new measures, all travelers, are required to complete a one-time, pre-travel registration form, prior to crossing the bridge. The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government will continue discussions with GNB to advocate for our members and residents. There are no plans to bring back the checkpoints at this time.
Changes to the New Brunswick Travel Registration System
Starting Tuesday, September 21 at 11:59 p.m., community members, residents, and staff, will need to complete a one-time, pre-travel registration form, when traveling across the bridge, as part of New Brunswick’s new travel registration program.
- When completing the form, you will be asked to provide proof of vaccination.
- People who are not fully vaccinated must isolate for 14 days. They can stop isolating if they receive a negative test result from a test taken on Day 10 or later. Unvaccinated individuals will be required to register for each trip.
- Individuals who are unable to receive a vaccine due to a medical exemption will be required to carry proof.
Individuals or businesses that fail to follow the new regulations may be subject to fines under New Brunswicks new measures. Fines range between $172.50 and $772.50.
