Clare, Nova Scotia, July 15, 2021—The Government of Canada recognizes the different ways that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted small and rural communities across Nova Scotia. That’s why it’s continuing to make strategic investments in infrastructure that meet the unique and specific needs of these communities across the province.

Together, federal, provincial, and local governments are taking decisive action to support families, businesses, and communities, and continue to look ahead to see what more can be done as Canada begins to recover from the impacts of the pandemic.
