LOUISBOURG TRAIL OPENS WITH SUPPORT FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA

LOUISBOURG (NS) – June 5, 2010 – The Coastal Connections Trail Association has officially opened a new hiking trail in Louisbourg thanks to an investment from the Government of Canada through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC).  The official opening took place at Lighthouse Point today, International Trails Day, an annual celebration to promote trail development, the use of trails and the healthy lifestyle they encourage. 

“Our government is working with the community of Louisbourg to strengthen the local economy and maintain Cape Breton Island’s standing as a popular tourism destination,” said the Honourable Keith Ashfield, Minister of National Revenue, Minister of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and Minister for the Atlantic Gateway. “This new addition to the community is a long term development investment that will strengthen the local economy, create new opportunities, develop tourism as well as enhance the community’s quality of life.”

The Government of Canada, through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation, has invested $125,000 in this initiative.

ECBC provided funding for the Coastal Connections Trail Association to construct the scenic hiking trail within the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Park. The trail follows the Atlantic Ocean between two Louisbourg landmarks, the lighthouse at Lighthouse Point and the gun emplacements at Wolfe’s Cove. The area was the site of considerable military activity during 1758 siege of Fortress Louisbourg. The new trail provides an interesting perspective on the history of the Fortress. 

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.
