Miramichi River Environmental Assessment Committee (MREAC)

Presentation of the Organization

The MREAC is a community based multi-stakeholder organization dedicated to the continual improvement of environmental quality of the Miramichi River ecosystem with emphasis on the Miramichi watershed.

MREAC was created in 1989 as a response to a community concern around a local pulp and paper mill expansion. The committee jointed the Atlantic Coastal Action Program (ACAP) in 1993.

MREAC focuses on science based research and environmental projects in order to protect and manage the Miramichi River watershed. This watershed encompasses approximately 23% of the province of New Brunswick land mass (13,465 sq. km), and embodies significant freshwater and estuarine habitats.
