In the Beginning:
The Aspotogan Heritage Trust was created following the decision of the Government of Canada to close Canadian Forces Station Mill Cove in 1994. Formed as a limited-membership, non-profit society by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency in October 1994, the Trust was established to administer a $2 million federal adjustment fund to respond to the social and economic consequences to the community, arising from the base closure. The name Aspotogan is Mi'kmaq for "where seals come to play" and the Aspotogan Penninsula is considered one of Mother Nature's Great Playgrounds.
The mission of the Aspotogan Heritage Trust is to use its funds to encourage and support the social, cultural, environmental, educational and economic development of the Aspotogan region.
1. We embrace and support growth and change that is respectful of our region’s history and culture and that preserves or enhances individual connectivity to one another and provides for broad benefits to the community.
2. We value the land, waters and creatures and seek to protect these assets for the future enjoyment of all by influencing and encouraging management practices that seek to balance the preservation of these assets with the many demands placed on them.
3. We believe in being accountable and value critical commentary and compliments alike.
4. The Trust will treat all with whom it deals or employs without prejudice, regardless of sex, age, colour, creed, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation or religious affiliation.
