What people are saying about CRI

“Co-locating ECCC scientists and technical staff at the Canadian Rivers Institute at UNB-Fredericton has significantly benefited Canadians.

The resulting network of government and academic researchers, students, technicians and postdocs, as well as community and industrial partners, has improved aquatic environmental monitoring and the application of environmental regulations nationally and internationally.

The partnership remains an important part of our ongoing strategy to address pressing environmental and climate change concerns of Canadians.”

Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
