Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia’s primary industries include fishing, tourism, agriculture, and natural resources. Fishing remains a cornerstone of the economy, with lobster, scallops, and other seafood as key exports. The province’s scenic landscapes fuel a thriving tourism sector, attracting visitors to its coastal areas, historic sites, and cultural festivals. Agriculture focuses on dairy, blueberries, apples, and wine production. Additionally, the natural resource sector involves mining, forestry, and renewable energy such as tidal power. Working conditions vary across these industries, with fishing being physically demanding, tourism offering seasonal employment, agriculture having seasonal fluctuations, and the natural resource sector providing diverse opportunities.
