Tourism Economic Development Fund

The Tourism Economic Development (TED) Fund exists to provide support to projects that strategically advance the growth of high-quality, competitive destinations, products and visitor experiences that are significant to East Hants, motivate travel and align with visitor needs.

Projects receiving assistance through the TED Fund will be focused on:

  • Building critical infrastructure and assets
  • Tourism products
  • Tourism capacity, and/or
  • Advancing the municipality’s strategic tourism priorities and plan

The new partnerships formed out of these projects will support economic viability and growth of their community, create employment, and be in line with the East Hants Strategic Plan and Economic Development Strategic Plan 2015-2020.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year.

Local organizations, businesses and individuals who are interested in partnering with East Hants on projects which support the growth of the Tourism sector in our area are encouraged to find out more about the TED fund by contacting:
