This two year project has been extremely successful in building capacity and resources within the Labrador Straits for new heritage tourism products and future opportunities. The project collected the traditional knowledge of local residents, made it accessible by the tools of information technology and created unique and authentic heritage products and presentations to build a stronger and a more diverse heritage tourism industry.
The Coastal Heritage Experience has increased the region’s capacity for creation of new economic initiatives in the heritage tourism sector, and has built a unique product that can be used for the collection and preservation of traditional knowledge resources in other regions.
