Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia – The Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, and the Member of Parliament for Central Nova, Sean Fraser will make an announcement related to the restoration of coastal habitats in Eastern Nova Scotia.

In May 2017, the Government of Canada announced the $75 million Coastal Restoration Fund to help rehabilitate some of our most vulnerable coastlines and protect marine life and ecosystems.
