About This Project

The Municipality of the County of Victoria in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia is encouraging residents to engage in more outdoor activity and play through an inclusive and accessible recreation equipment loan program. Residents can borrow equipment such as skis, snowshoes and walking poles. In 2017 the program saw 411 rentals from libraries in Baddeck, Ingonish and the Victoria County bookmobile.
