Victoria County was one of the first municipalities to focus on broadband infrastructure and became the most connected rural county in North America. Recognizing that this vital infrastructure is key to economic success, a three-phase program was initiated. Working with partners Aliant, Eastlink and Seaside Cable—Victoria County built the needed infrastructure to provide high-speed Internet to every community in the county.
The Village of Baddeck is also the commercial centre for the county. Victoria County is focused on creating and fostering economic growth, and has created a commercial waterfront zone to maximize the economic potential of Baddeck Harbour.
