Nova Scotia Small Business Investment Fund
We must support small businesses in Cape Breton and across the Province who face potentially dire financial impacts as a result of COVID-19. In recognizing the importance of our small businesses, I am committed to investing $60 million dollars to reduce the property tax burden on our small businesses across the province.
This relief over the next year will ensure small businesses can withstand COVID-19, keep people employed, and pay their taxes to municipalities. We must work to ensure the Main Streets across Cape Breton and Nova Scotia remain vibrant during and after COVID-19. Their success is our Province’s success.
NEW – Creating a Brewmaster & Brewery Operations Management Course at NSCC
A two-year course to teach students the microbiology and chemistry of making beer; marketing and selling beer; and brewery management. This program will be popular with women and men who are pursuing a new career or a practical top-up to their existing education. With the growth of craft breweries in Atlantic Canada, there is a demand for trained brewers for the industry.
This course is the first to be offered east of Ontario and will attract students from across Atlantic Canada and abroad. It will support our growing craft brewery, cidery, and distillery industry.
