Cape d’Or Receives Major Tourism Boost

The federal government has committed $100,000 to enhance the tourism experience at the Cape d’Or Coastal Park.

The Tourism Minister, Mélanie Joly, made the announcement today at a special ceremony at the Cape d’Or lighthouse.

Joly said, “Through our new tourism growth strategy, we want to invest in smaller communities so they can attract more tourists to reap the benefits of the global tourism boom.” The Minister added, “We do that by helping them develop and enhance the experiences they offer tourists like the spectacular Cape d’Or Coastal Park.”

The financial support is offered through the Canada Experiences Fund, part of the federal government’s new tourism strategy.

Bill Casey, the Member of Parliament for Cumberland/Colchester said, “Unlocking the potential of Cape d’Or represents an opportunity for yet another iconic coastal site providing locals and visitors with even more reasons to explore Atlantic Canada and contribute to the region’s economy.”

The Nova Scotia Minister of Tourism agrees. Geoff MacLellan said, “Visitors from across Canada and around the world are inspired to visit our province to experience the world’s highest tides at the Bay of Fundy. This investment will provide much-needed infrastructure at this iconic attraction and provide a new platform for entrepreneurs to create visitor-focused experiences.”

The Municipality of Cumberland invested $100,000 in the project, while the province contributed $92,000.

Warden Al Gillis says, “For us, Cape d’Or is one of our ‘building blocks’ along the Fundy Shore.” Those building blocks include the UNESCO World Heritage site in Joggins, Cape Chignecto Park in Advocate harbour (one of the premier hiking parks in Canada), the Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro, and an aspiring UNESCO Geopark. Gillis says, “All of this is nestled along the shores of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of North America, the Bay of Fundy.”

If they could make it easier to get from the parking area to the lighthouse....I realize it’s a steep area, but more people would probably go there if they could drive to the lighthouse/restaurant
