South-East New Brunswick South-East New Brunswick is excited to become the 14th fmi*igf Chapter in Canada. Our Chapter was officially approved on November 26, 2010. Our primary focus is to provide networking, professional development opportunities and best practice sharing to financial management practitioners in all levels of federal, provincial and municipal governments. The region of South-East NB is centrally located and is considered the hub of the Maritimes. It is home to three universities and two community colleges. Known for its entrepreneurial culture, the region remains in the forefront in distribution and telecommunications. Our region consists of a vibrant bilingual workforce recognized for low turnover, low absenteeism and high productivity. No wonder it's been recently voted the #1 place to do business in Atlantic Canada. The public sector is well represented by various federal departments, numerous municipalities and several provincial organizations.
