About Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia is located on Canada's southeastern coast. It is the most populous province in Atlantic Canada. Its capital, Halifax, is a major economic centre of the region.
Nova Scotia lies in the mid temperate zone, and although the province is not quite surrounded by water, the climate is closer to continental rather than maritime. The temperature extremes of the continental climate are moderated by the ocean.
