Nova Scotia is a Canadian province located on Canada's south eastern coast.  It is the most populous province in Maritimes, and its capital, the Halifax Regional Municipality, is the economic and cultural center of the region. Nova Scotia is the second smallest province in Canada, with an area of only 55,284 km², but its population of 937,889. Nova Scotians (or, less formally, Bluenosers) makes it the seventh most populous province. Nova Scotia's economy continues to be largely resource based, but has in recent years become more diverse. You may look forward to a historical, cultural Nova Scotia vacation.

Traditional industries such as fishing, mining, forestry and agriculture remain very important, and have been joined by tourism, technology, film production, music and other cultural industries. The territory now known as Nova Scotia was home to the Mi'kmaq when the first European settlers arrived. In 1604, French settlers established the first permanent settlement north of Florida at Port Royal, founding what would become known as Acadia. The British Empire obtained control of the region between 1713 and 1760, and established the new capital at Halifax in 1749. Nova Scotia was one of the founding four provinces to join Confederation with Canada in 1867.
