World Famous Cabot Trail Sign at St. Ann

The Cabot Trail Working Association has embarked on a major signage program that includes directional, orientation and interpretative signage. The program will also place information kiosks in each of the eight regions on the Cabot Trail. The above sign is located at St. Ann’s, Victoria County, and is part of the project’s signage program. There are 3 more signs like this located in Indian Brook,  Margaree Harbour and Nyanza.

The signage and kiosks program is a partnership between ACOA ICF Program,  NS Tourism, Culture & Heritage, Municipalities of Inverness and Victoria Counties and Cabot Trail Working Association.

Another important part of the program is a market ready assessment that was conduct by Roger Brooks, Destination Development Inc, Seattle, Washington. On October 2nd, at Place des Arts Pere Ansel Chiasson ( new Auditorium, NDA School) in Cheticamp, Mr. Roger Brooks will present “Tourism Solutions for the Cabot Trail through the eyes of our visitors”, a result of the 5 day assessment of  the Cabot Trail in July. He will present his findings and offer solutions to the challenges. For more information and how to register contact Kim Lemky, Cabot Trail Tourism Co-ordinator – cabottrail.tourism@ns.sympatico.ca

  1. Congratulations on your new signage program. I have spent time along the Cabot Trail. Scenery is spectacular – food is great – and the people are wonderful. I can’t wait to go back.
