Investments announced for Georges Island. Over $2.07 million in joint funding between the Government of Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia for the construction of a new, accessible wharf with floating docks. The project aims to ensure safe access to the island, creating a historical and cultural attraction and enhancing Halifax Harbour for residents and visitors. Work will begin this fall.
A $1.6 million investment will support new visitor experiences that will enable Canadians to discover and connect with history. Parks Canada will continue to work with the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia, Acadians, and key stakeholders as visitor experience opportunities are developed to ensure the stories told on the island represent the important and layered history associated with this local landmark.
