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.

Big Boat Shed

As one of the anchor points for the Lunenburg waterfront, the Big Boat Shed stands as the focal point and first big move of redevelopment of the shipyard precinct. The building requires structural and functional improvements to allow it to continue as a place of wooden boat construction and repair as well as to open these activities up as part of the waterfront visitor experience.
