About Nova Scotia:

Nova Scotia is the second smallest, yet second most-densely populated province in Canada, comprising a peninsula and many offshore islands on the nation’s east coast.

Green and rugged hills speckled with farms and fringed by high sea cliffs make up the majority of natural Nova Scotian backdrops, whilst the countless harbours are lined by fishing boats and charming houses. So it’s easy to see why over a hundred Canadian film productions are held here each year.

The capital, Halifax, is one of the most historic cities in North America. Home to the oldest lighthouse on the continent, it also boasts fascinating sites from the American Revolution and once saw the greatest artificial explosion in the world, before Hiroshima, when two battleships collided during the First World War. Moreover, it’s consistently ranked as one of the best Canadian cities for quality of life and business friendliness.

Nova Scotia is well connected by ferry, with regular crossings from Canadian cities across the Bay of Fundy and the Northumberland Strait. There are also frequent international ferry routes from the United States.
