The accused is scheduled to appear in court in Carlyle, Sask., on July 16, say RCMP.

A Saskatchewan man is facing internet child exploitation charges in connection with a case allegedly involving a girl from New Brunswick, say RCMP.

The 53-year-old man from Carlyle, Sask., is charged with possession of child pornography, communicating with a person under 18 to facilitate the commission of an offence and sending sexual material to a person under 18 to facilitate the commission of an offence, Cpl. Jean Marc ParĂ© said in a news release.

The accused, whose name is not being released to protect the identity of the child, will make his first court appearance on July 16 in Carlyle, ParĂ© said.

RCMP began their investigation about a week ago, following a complaint being filed in New Brunswick, he said.

It was a joint investigation by members of the integrated child exploitation units in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.
