Great places are accessible and they’re connected.
We collaborate with communities to make plans that reflect the local culture and build community pride. And we work behind community to bring these plans to life in the form of mainstreets, waterfronts, squares, public places, and platforms for business and innovation. Through the process and the outcome, we’re building community, connection, and places people love—together.

Harbour Islands Visitor Experience Strategy
Develop Nova Scotia is leading the development of the Visitor Experience Strategy for the Halifax Harbour Islands.
We believe that the best places to visit aren’t built for the visitor. We work closely with communities to build on quality of place and develop sustainable and accessible year-round destinations. The result is intensely-local plans and places that are rooted in the strength of community and created for community first, but benefit the visitor too.
In Nova Scotia, no one is more than 67km from the ocean. This shapes how we live, work, and play—and it guides how we grow.
Working waterfronts make Nova Scotia work. We collaborate with community and industry to develop sustainable infrastructure that support multiple businesses to thrive, grow, and innovate across high-potential ocean sectors.
