GOVERNMENT OF CANADA INVESTS IN TOURISM INFRASTRUCTURE IN CAPE BRETON

SYDNEY (NS) – March 16, 2011 – Hiking enthusiasts from Cape Breton Island and beyond will soon be able to enjoy enhancements to trails in Louisbourg, Coxheath and Judique as a result of a significant investment from the Government of Canada.

“Our Government is working to create and sustain jobs for Nova Scotians in all regions of the province and is committed to investing in projects that strengthen and benefit our communities,” said the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence and Regional Minister for Nova Scotia. “Through our government’s support for projects across Cape Breton we are helping communities build, improving the economy and enhancing the Island’s reputation as a popular tourism destination.”

The Louisbourg Economic Development and Environmental Society will complete the Louisbourg Lighthouse Trail by adding three kilometres of trail, developing a parking area and constructing washrooms and a bridge. A second component of the project involves conducting a study for a possible new trail to follow the coastline between the community of Louisbourg and the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. The total cost of this project is $284,140. The Government of Canada, through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC) is providing $145,380.

The Coxheath Hills Wilderness Recreation Association will expand and upgrade its popular trail near Sydney by adding an additional six kilometres, as well as aligning, cutting and resurfacing the existing trail and constructing a bridge. With these upgrades, the trail will become a year round operation. The total cost of this project is $225,200 and the Government of Canada through ECBC is investing $120,000.

The Judique Flyer Trail Association will construct a walking trail that connects with the Trans Canada Trail system in Judique, NS. The trail will be known as the Celtic Corridor to the Shores and will connect local residents and visitors to the coastal beaches and scenic shoreline of the Judique area. The total cost of the project is $181,250 and the Government of Canada through ECBC is providing $110,000.

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA's programs on Cape Breton Island and in the Mulgrave area.
