Government of Canada announces investment to support tourism in the Bay of Fundy
“New Brunswick has so many incredible experiences to offer tourists, from outdoor adventure around the spectacular Bay of Fundy to world-class snowmobile trails. This will help communities in the area reap the benefits of the global tourism boom to diversify their economies and create good jobs for the middle-class. Our government is investing to enable communities and businesses across the country to develop tourism products and experiences to attract more tourists year-round.”
– The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie
“Innovation doesn’t only happen in big cities; it happens in all regions of Canada. That’s why our regional development agencies play an important role in helping businesses turn innovation into economic growth and good jobs for Canadians. Through the CEF, our government is investing in the development of our tourism sector and the economic potential of our vibrant communities.”
– The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA
“Our magnificent region plays a vital role in Canada’s dynamic tourism sector. Developing attractions in the Fundy region creates good job opportunities close to home and helps support local businesses that are growing and adding to our vibrant rural communities. Congratulations to Annick and her team at Cape Enrage for their dedication and willingness to innovate and create new experiences for visitors to Cape Enrage.”
– Alaina Lockhart, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie, Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal
"The team at Cape Enrage is thrilled to move forward with this incredible opportunity. We are here today, preserving the lighthouse and this beautiful site, thanks to many students, teachers and stakeholders who invested their time and effort into saving Cape Enrage years ago. We are very much dedicated to working with students and education; therefore, we will have local high school students design, research, plan and propose their own fog fence prototypes. I am so grateful for the funding and trust in us to move this important project forward, and encourage people to keep visiting Cape Enrage on sunny and foggy days.”
– Annick Butland, Managing Director, Cape Enrage
Tourism represents more than 2% of the total value of goods produced and services provided in Canada.
Tourism supports more than 1.8 million jobs in Canada.
Regional development agencies are one of Canada’s four flagship platforms supporting innovation, along with the Industrial Research Assistance Program, the Strategic Innovation Fund and the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service.
The CEF supports Canadian businesses and organizations seeking to create, improve or enhance tourism products, facilities and experiences.
Cape Enrage offers one of the most spectacular views of the natural phenomenon from its towering cliffs and has been a light station and fog alarm since 1838; the current light tower is over 140 years old.
