Cape Breton Island is focused on preserving and promoting its unique Highland history and heritage, and keeping the culture alive for residents and visitors. The Government of Canada is investing in improvements to the Gaelic College campus in St. Anns. 

Today, Jaime Battiste, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Member of Parliament for Sydney-Victoria, announced a non-repayable contribution of $300,000 to the non-profit Gaelic College Foundation to complete energy efficiency upgrades at the Gaelic College. The announcement was made on behalf of the Honourable Gudie Hutchings, Minister of Rural Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA.

Improvements include the installation of solar panels, heat pumps and a new steel roof on the campus’ main buidling. These upgrades will help the college become more cost effective and environmentally sustainable, strengthening its position as a learning, tourism and community hub for year-round activities.

The Government of Canada is committed to supporting projects that help build deeper connections to the region’s unique cultural offerings, and contribute to a strong, sustainable future.
