“I am pleased to see our Government continuing to support the culture and heritage of our community,” said Greg Kerr. “This investment will help make this year’s exhibition one to remember.”
“We are happy to see the Government of Canada and our Member of Parliament continue to support the Western Nova Scotia Exhibition,” said Bonnie Hall, President of the Yarmouth County Agricultural Society. “We look forward to yet another great event this summer.”

This program will benefit many community events and celebrations throughout Canada this year.
