Feature Stories

Even though Nova Scotia is Canada’s second smallest province, our people share a rich tapestry of culture and heritage that shapes who we are and where we live. Today, our sheltered bays and inlets continue to welcome newcomers to our shores, solidifying our enviable reputation for hospitality and acceptance of difference. Our legacy of migration can be found in our physical surroundings; in our museums, archives and libraries; in our communities; and in the varied and dynamic nature of our cultural expression. Influenced by the beauty of the land, captivated by a relationship with the sea, and inspired by the desire to not only preserve our roots, but also, invite new roots to grow, Nova Scotians are enriched by who we were and who we have yet to become.
