Ability New Brunswick takes over province's vehicle retrofit program

Ability New Brunswick is partnering with the provincial government to manage the province's vehicle retrofit program.

The program covers up to 80 per cent of the cost to supply and install eligible retrofit and accessibility features for vehicles, up to $8,000.

Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser says many New Brunswickers rely on the program to ensure they can fully participate in the economy and the community.

About 60 clients benefitted this year from the program, which has an operating budget of $275,000.
