Today, the federal government, Nova Scotia, said that on 53 new tourism projects, it has planned to spend $6.3 million.

The minister entrusted for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, said that the main target is to draw greater number of visitors to the region by spending in what she has defined as world-class tourist destinations.

The Eskasoni First Nation in Cape Breton is among the recipients which will receive $500,000 to make Eskasoni Cultural Journeys new programming. It’s an award-winning immersive Indigenous experience.

To Saltair Nordic Spa in Baxter’s Harbour, yet another $500,000 will be given. Here the owners will construct a trail system and Nordic pools.

Around $100,000 will be given to the Quarterdeck Resort in Summerville for the construction of tourist accommodations.

The cash from the federal Tourism Relief Fund will be an extra addition to the $7.1 million allocated to 52 similar projects in the last two years in Nova Scotia.

Petitpas Taylor stated that in their beautiful region, they have so much to be proud of and so lovely things to share with the visitors.

As they start on the tourism season, they are affirming once again the vital importance of the sector to their economy, and their total commitment to help the businesses and organizations related to tourism based in Nova Scotia to expand the world-class experiences.
