Parks Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard College announced an agreement to work together in sharing the story of marine heritage in Nova Scotia as it connects to the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. The two organizations signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at the Canadian Coast Guard College's graduation awards ceremony last week in Westmount, Nova Scotia.

This three-year MOU focuses on telling the story of marine heritage in Nova Scotia to students, visitors, and the public, as well as advancing learning opportunities within the respective organizations through volunteering opportunities. Parks Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard College share a long-standing relationship and a natural connection with deep roots in marine heritage in Nova Scotia. This MOU encourages collaborative efforts to facilitate a better understanding of marine heritage, including sailing and navigation, and how they relate to both the Canadian Coast Guard College and 18th century Louisbourg.

Current projects include an annual volunteer program, along with continued efforts to provide learning experiences that allow the Canadian Coast Guard College and Parks Canada's staff to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the organizations and their connection to marine heritage in Nova Scotia.
