Nova Scotia is Latin for ‘New Scotland' and has a multicultural population of one million.
It is Canada's second smallest province and tucked away in the south eastern corner of the Atlantic coastline. There are over 7,000km of rugged coastlines with powdery white beaches, world-class surf and tasty seafood including its world famous red lobsters.

With mild winters and warm summers averaging up to 23 degrees, outdoor pursuits are available in abundance; a ski season that runs from December until March, walking, fishing, boating and everything else offered by the Great Outdoors.
