Nova Scotia, which means "New Scotland" is Canada's second smallest province and is also one of the first to make up the Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867, but John Cabot first explored the region some 400 years before.


With over 3800 islands and long coastlines it is no wonder that most communities are found by the water, including Canada's oldest African-Canadian community. Nova Scotia has a long history in fishing and ship building; they were the ones who first responded to the sinking of the Titanic. Nova Scotia is also well known for its lobster, in fact the province itself looks like a lobster.
