Nova Scotia — New Scotland — is Canada’s Ocean Playground. A breath-taking coastline links land and sea in this amazingly diverse place.

Nova Scotia is the centre of Canada’s Eastern Edge and its energetic capital city Halifax is the hub of commerce, culture and cuisine, home to four universities and Canada’s Atlantic Navy.

The newly completed Halifax Convention Centre is the perfect fit for congresses and conventions, located in the heart of the city with over 120,000 square feet of flexible event space.

Proud tall ships from across the world jostle in the historic harbour with bustling ferries, cargo ships and tugs, navy frigates and the occasional kayaker.

  • In the Highlands of Cape Breton Gaelic is still spoken by descendants of Scottish Highlanders and the hospitality and scenery will never be forgotten. The coastal Cabot Trail is one of the most stunning drives in the world and golfing on links overlooking the sea cannot be matched.

  • The Annapolis Valley is home to superlative vineyards to explore and sample the offerings paired with outstanding local foods. Incredible unsearchable dining experiences for your clients abound in The Valley.

  • You’ll find French speaking Acadian farms and fishing harbours along the Fundy Shore and in the Bay of Fundy the highest tides in the world create a dramatic backdrop for whale watching and rafting the Fundy tides.

  • On the stunning South Shore you’ll still catch a hint of a German accent passed down from the founding families in the picture-perfect fishing harbour town of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home port of the Bluenose II — Canada’s beloved racing schooner, memorialized on the 10 cent coin.

  • Iconic Peggy’s cove and its world-famous lighthouse gives an intimate glimpse of Nova Scotia’s fishing heritage and the power of the sea.


Imagine flying by helicopter to a remote island of sand dunes and wild horses to picnic in wild splendour or dining in an 18th century fortress overlooking the Atlantic.
