Atlantic Canadian tourism operators are working hard to recover from pandemic challenges and find new approaches to deliver world-class tourism experiences. That is why the Government of Canada is investing to help Memory Lane Heritage Village in Lake Charlotte enhance visitor services and upgrade its website.
Award-winning community museum will offer safer environment, improved facilities
Today, Sean Fraser, Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Middle Class Prosperity and Associate Minister of Finance, and Member of Parliament for Central Nova, announced a non-repayable contribution of $28,000 to the non-profit Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society, which owns and operates the museum that depicts life in rural Nova Scotia in the 1940s.
The announcement was made on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA.
This contribution will help the Society upgrade outdoor spaces at the museum, overhaul the outdoor play area to include more natural elements, and create an online shop and ticketing system, among other web improvements. This project will generate work for local subcontractors and lead to extended work terms for seasonal staff.
Today’s announcement further demonstrates the Government of Canada’s commitment to helping rural regions strengthen their communities, attract more visitors and grow, building a more resilient, inclusive economy.
