Premier to meet with Nova Scotia wine producers today

Premier Tim Houston is set to meet with representatives from the wine industry today, March 18.

The government’s efforts to support the wine industry while adhering to trade regulations have been ongoing. “We’ve been trying to achieve the right balance of support for the entire wine industry, given the June 30 deadline to achieve trade compliance,” said Premier Houston. “Our government has continued to engage with the industry and monitored how new sector support programs are working in their early stages.”

One of the key concerns raised by the local farm wine sector has been the potential impact of these changes on their operations. The Premier acknowledged the significance of this sector to the province, stating, “We’ve also heard concerns from the local farm wine sector, which we agree is very important in this province.”

The meeting with industry representatives aims to address these concerns and inform the government’s next steps.
