This strategy, released on June 28, identifies opportunities for the sustainable development and use of Heart’s Content’s unique heritage and cultural assets, such as the Heart’s Content Cable Station Provincial Historic Site. It supports the town’s efforts to bring more visitors to the area, maximizing economic, social and cultural benefits for businesses and residents.
