A new initiative is encouraging New Brunswick residents to plan a staycation in the province this summer.
The Explore NB Travel Incentive program was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to stimulate the tourism industry. It will allow New Brunswickers to apply for a 20 per cent rebate on eligible expenses made while taking a vacation that includes a paid overnight stay in the province between July 15 and Sept. 30.
Good news for foodservice
Restaurants Canada welcomes this new program as a way to help boost traffic to restaurants and other foodservice businesses continuing to struggle from the impacts of COVID-19.
We continue to be at the table, working closely with all levels of government to ensure the needs of the foodservice industry continue to be heard as the response to the ongoing pandemic continues to evolve.
