Nova Scotia Information

Nova Scotia is a peninsula on the east coast of Canada. Settlements in Nova Scotia (the Latin term for "New Scotland") began in 1604. In the 1600s, Nova Scotia was part of Acadia. All of Nova Scotia passed into possession of Great Britain in 1713. The Province of Nova Scotia was formed in 1867, being one of the original four provinces to join the Confederation.
