Local History & Heritage

Exploring Victoria County’s history & heritage by engaging local seniors to share stories and memories is part of Victoria County CAP Sites Association’s “Local History & Heritage Project”.

In partnership with the Nova Scotia Department of Senior’s Positive Aging Program and the VCCAPS Fall/Winter Youth Project, VCCAPS Association is providing opportunities for seniors, both as participants and recipients, to share stories and experiences as well learning new skills. Training sessions are available on various topics including; scanning photos and creating forms of multimedia like videos and slideshows.

The Project is also offering mobile digital collection opportunities, which will assist in building a network of content related to history & heritage and help develop the digital skills of residents. These glimpses of history & heritage will be preserved for future generations and will reflect how our heritage and culture is steeped in local industries and traditions.
