Internet for Nova Scotia Initiative

Connectivity and accessibility—including Internet connectivity—are important factors in building places where businesses and people flourish. That’s why Develop Nova Scotia is designing and managing the implementation strategy for the Internet for Nova Scotia Initiative in connection with the Nova Scotia Internet Funding Trust.

Peggys Cove Master Plan

Halifax Waterfront

We began as Waterfront Development, creating experiences and opportunities by investing in infrastructure at the water’s edge. We have been building on the greatness of the ocean since 1976. The waterfront has always been the historical core of commercial and naval Halifax. We began with a focus on the Halifax Harbour, and have since expanded our operations to the Bedford, Dartmouth, and Lunenburg waterfronts. Find out more about the history that led us to carrying out our work province-wide.

Corporate

At Develop Nova Scotia, our mandate is to lead the sustainable development of high-potential property and infrastructure to drive inclusive economic growth in Nova Scotia.
