New Brunswick’s Unclaimed Property Act requires holders of unclaimed monetary property – including businesses, associations, and government organizations – to annually:
- review their books to search for monetary property that belongs to someone else;
- notify the owners of this property before it is reported; and
- report the property to the Unclaimed Property Program if they cannot reunite it with its owner.
The reporting period under the Unclaimed Property Act runs from January 1 to March 31 each year. Reporting to be done through FundsFinderNB.ca.
The Act requires holders to determine if monetary property held has become unclaimed property at the end of 2017 and each subsequent year.
