  • Rogers Communications Inc. today announced an

    investment of $109 million in the province of New Brunswick. At the Rogers Customer Care Centre in Moncton this morning, together with government officials, Rogers provided details of the investment, which covers an expansion of the Rogers Moncton Customer Care Centre and the creation of 244 new jobs. It also includes an extension of the Rogers Wireless network and an
    upgrade of the Cable network.

    “I am pleased that we are able to partner with Rogers as it continues to expand in New Brunswick,” said Premier Shawn Graham. “Today, I am also pleased to announce that the Government of New Brunswick will provide a forgivable
    loan of up to $1,342,000 for up to 244 new jobs at the Rogers Moncton Customer Care Centre. As we move toward self-sufficiency, it is essential to improve the telecommunication infrastructure of our province and to partner with companies that want to expand and invest in New Brunswick.”

    “This investment is yet another sign of Rogers commitment to New Brunswick,” said Edward Rogers, President, Rogers Cable Inc. “As a leading Canadian telecommunications company, we will continue to ensure that our customers in this province receive the most advanced products and services available. In addition, we are very pleased that we can draw on the skills of
    people in Moncton to expand our Customer Care Centre.”

    The Rogers Moncton Customer Care Centre, which opened in September of 2024, is a state-of-the-art, bilingual facility that already employs more than 800 New Brunswickers and supports Rogers Cable, high speed Internet and
    Wireless customers across Canada. The centre will be expanded by 15,000 square feet and the new jobs will result in more than 1,000 people working there.

    As well as the expansion of the Rogers Moncton Customer Care Centre, Rogers will expand its Wireless network in the Province by over 50%. This includes increasing existing coverage in all major urban areas and connecting highways while adding coverage in several areas of New Brunswick, including Campbellton and the Acadian Peninsula. The Campbellton region, Acadian
    Peninsula and the Western side of the province will also benefit from a significant cable network rebuild, which is now underway.

    The investment of $109 million is in addition to the more than $140 million Rogers has already invested in New Brunswick.
