Our membership will work together to reach the objectives of the Association, including, but not limited to:

  • Acting as an independent extra-governmental body advocating for the discipline of archaeology
  • Promoting the conservation of archaeological resources

  • Encouraging professionalism in archaeology, the sharing and dissemination of research, archaeological education both within and outside of the professional community, and cooperation through a culture of inclusion within and beyond the profession of archaeology.

With these goals in mind, the Association is inviting you to join and encouraging the participation of all interested and eligible parties throughout New Brunswick and the Canadian Maritime Provinces.

  1. I will be attending UNBFR in my third year (which is this coming September) to begin my introductory courses. Your archaeology community sounds like a great idea for potential archaeologists!

    • Hi Laura,

      My apologies for not replying sooner. We have a meeting tomorrow here in Fredericton, see info below:

      The Association of Professional Archaeologists of New Brunswick/L’Association des Archaeologues Professionnels du Nouveau-Brunswick will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Saturday, November 14th, 2015 in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
      The meeting will be held from 10am to 3:30pm (9:30am reception) and will take place in the upstairs conference room of the Soldier’s Barracks building at 463 Queen Street, in Fredericton. The Soldier’s Barracks is itself a heritage building and was the former location of the New Brunswick Archaeological Services Unit.
      Tea, coffee, and snacks will be provided as well as lunch!
      Keep in mind as well that membership renewals are due and we are offering extended membership terms for any new members who join at Saturday’s meeting. We will have plenty of membership forms on-hand to fill out. As this year’s field season winds down, there are a lot of important things to discuss regarding archaeology in our region so we hope to see you all there!
