The All-Terrain Vehicle Association of Nova Scotia (ATVANS) and New Brunswick All-Terrain Vehicle Federation (NBATVF) are pleased to announce that they have reached a reciprocal agreement to recognize each other’s trail permit/membership making travel in each jurisdiction easier and less expensive.
This cross border partnership is a result of strong relationships formed by each association through membership in the All-terrain Quad Council of Canada (AQCC) and recognises the will of our clubs and members to strive to be great friends, neighbours and partners. This agreement has been in discussion for some time. This agreement started as an idea at meetings held between staff and president of both associations over 4 years ago in Fredericton New Brunswick. Past president of ATVANS, the late Roger Mailman would be very happy to see this idea has finally reached agreement.
The agreement allows each association to recognize the permit/membership of the other, however, members/permit holders are required to follow all provincial rules and regulations along with any provincial land use stipulations and policies.
“Our provincial rider federations have always worked closely together through our involvement in AQCC” said Roger Daigle President of NBATVF. This historic agreement will promote economic activity in each jurisdiction and help grow the sport of ATVing in our region.
“As current president of ATVANS and Interim-President AQCC I am very pleased that members in both provinces will benefit from this historic agreement.” Said Vince Sawler President of ATVANS & AQCC
A photo opportunity will be planned at the border in the near future.
