Fowler Bauld & Mitchell Ltd. was commissioned by the Cape Breton Partnership and Develop Nova Scotia to prepare a Retail Market Assessment for the town of Louisbourg. The study was carried out over the period of January to March 2021.

The objective of this study is to thoroughly quantify and document Louisbourg’s resident and visitor retail markets and estimate the potential retail opportunity in the community for attracting and retaining spending and businesses, especially in light of planned improvements to Louisbourg’s waterfront experience in partnership with the CBRM and DevelopNS.
