Cumberland, Colchester, Amherst, Millbrook First Nation, Oxford, Sipekne’katik, Stewiake, Bible Hill and Truro will soon be the latest regions to embark on a provincial initiative to promote all the things to do and places to see in Fundy.
FundyConnect.ca is a web space where users can find events, attractions, programs, trails, things to do, and places to be, in and around Cumberland and Colchester counties. The site is expected to become a go-to site for finding fun and adventure in communities connected by the highest tides in the world.
“We are happy to assist communities in the Fundy Region through the provision of one centralized location where residents and visitors alike can check out what’s going on in their community,’’ Peter McCracken, Regional Manager - Fundy Region with the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, said. “Fundy Connect is something we have heard communities and municipalities asking for and we are happy to be part of the delivery.”
Users can upload information about their own community events and happenings to assist with advertising efforts.
“Fundy Connect is a one-stop-shop searchable database,” Craig Burgess, Manager of Recreation Services for the County of Colchester, said. “We are very excited to be involved in this initiative, and feel this is a needed and useful service, and one our residents will appreciate.”
The website launched Nov. 17, with a cross-region tour beginning in Truro. The tour will include the Fundy Connect Titan Truck rolling into many community events over the next five-weeks. When folks see the truck they are invited to chat with the Fundy Connect Ambassador to get some fun giveaways, and learn more about how the web space works.
“It’s been great to partner with the different municipalities in the region to put forth this comprehensive resource for our communities, ‘’ Bill Schurman, Director of Recreation for the Town of Amherst, said. “We are very excited about the web space and are looking forward to the launch and the mobile tour.”
