June 9, 2023 – Government of Canada: The Town of Three Rivers, in eastern Prince Edward Island, is known for its beautiful vistas and the many recreational activities along its waterways. The Government of Canada understands that investments in safety and accessibility for walkers and boaters in this area will help improve quality of life, enhance tourism offerings, and bring more people to downtown businesses.
Lawrence MacAulay, Member of Parliament for Cardigan, announced a total investment of $251,400 to the Montague Waterfront Development Corporation to support trail and marina improvements in Montague. The announcement was made on behalf of Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA.
ACOA’s contribution supported the addition of automated, energy efficient lighting along a two-kilometre portion of the Confederation Trail. This improvement will encourage increased use of the trail, especially during shoulder seasons.
The investment also supported enhancements to the waterfront, including fueling station upgrades and new floating docks, which will draw more boat traffic, and attract more visitors to local businesses.
