The provincial government has introduced a new Unclaimed Property Act, which includes the creation of an unclaimed property program.
The program, to be administered by the Financial and Consumer Services Commission, is expected to assist to protect New Brunswickers.
It is also expected to facilitate the injection of funds into the economy as consumers are reconciled with their unclaimed money or other property items.
New Brunswick will be the fourth province to implement the program. Other provinces with a similar program are Alberta, Quebec and British Columbia.
