As a founding Province of Canada, Nova Scotia is known as “Canada’s Ocean Playground,” as it is almost completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. The Province is best known for its world record high tides, lobster, fish, blueberries, apples and scenic coastlines. Located on the East Coast of Canada, Nova Scotia is one of the four Atlantic Provinces, and is easily accessible by air, sea or land travel.

Nova Scotia’s culture has deep roots within several “founding cultures” - the Mikmaq First Nation, French, Scottish, English, Irish and African. These were later supplemented by settlers from the United States, and, in recent times, by immigrants from around the world. The result is a fascinating blend of people known for their honesty, enterprise and good nature - qualities that also characterize the Nova Scotia business community.
