BURNT CHURCH, N.B. _ The New Brunswick government says the completion of a bridge on Esgenoopetitj First Nation will allow the community to develop nearly 250 hectares of land for blueberry harvesting.

Agriculture Minister Rick Doucet says the reserve land is located in one of the province’s major wild blueberry producing regions.

He says developing the land will create jobs and support the local economy.

The government provided $247,000 in funding for the bridge.
