A Brief History

The Miramichi River Environmental Assessment Committee (MREAC) was formed in 1989 as a multi-stakeholder Environmental Non-Governmental Organization (ENGO) to address watershed-based issues. Since 1993 it has been a member of the Atlantic Coastal Action Program (ACAP), now the Atlantic Ecosystem Initiative (AEI). MREAC continues to function as a multi-stakeholder community-based not-for-profit watershed organisation that monitors, assesses, and addresses environmental issues on the Miramichi watershed.

The Miramichi Watershed

The Miramichi watershed encompasses approximately 23% (~13, 547 km²) of New Brunswick, and MREAC has been committed to the environmental stewardship and management of this important riverine and coastal ecosystem. The Miramichi River and her tributaries are considered to be one of the most important Atlantic salmon habitats in the world.
