Scottish Gaels are one of Nova Scotia's largest ethnic groups, and Gaelic culture contributes tens of millions of dollars per year to the provincial economy. Yet, there has never been a systematic policy developed to provide support for the culture in Nova Scotia, and surprisingly little accurate information about the province's Gaelic heritage is widely known or available. This report represents a first attempt to address that need.
