Janet led the Salt Spring Island Chamber to become the first green-accredited Chamber of Commerce in Canada as certified through Green Tourism Canada. She hopes to bring the same attention to the need for green business practices in her work in promoting the economy along the Bay of Fundy region and in Albert County. She is especially proud to be living and working in the Fundy UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and hopes to be able to support their work through her role in the Albert County Museum.
Janet has been named to the Board of the Albert County Tourism Association to support their work of developing a robust visitor economy through the Bay of Fundy region, from Riverview to Fundy National Park. “Tourism is an important economic driver in this region and there are many people who own, operate and work in tourism-related businesses in the area,” says Clouston. “As we work towards helping these community members, we will also ensure that the Albert County Museum will continue to operate successfully into the foreseeable future.”
The Albert County Museum is located in Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick. The Museum consists of eight buildings on a six-acre site and features twenty-two themed galleries. All of the buildings are original to the site and are part of the overall historical Shiretown of Albert County. The County Tax Office, County Records Office and County Gaol (jail) are from the time of the creation of Albert County in 1845.
New for 2019 will be an exhibit called “Acadians in Albert County” and a recent addition was “County of Heroes WWI Featuring Canadian Hero Col. Cyrus Peck VC.” Preparations have started for the 175th Anniversary of Albert County that will take place in 2020.
The museum is open daily 9:30am-5:30pm from May 18 until the end of September. It is located two minutes north of the Hopewell Rocks. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors and $25 for families; admission for children under five is free. Group rates are available. The Community Hall and Courthouse are available for private bookings.
