Industrial R&D spending in New Brunswick is up strongly in recent years. NB companies still spend a fraction of the big four provinces on R&D but we are moving up. Don’t forget this is only industrial spending. Overall R&D spending in NB (industrial, government and institutional combined) is still, I believe, either dead last or second last in Canada among the 10 provinces.
