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 Paré 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, Paré 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.
