Nova Scotia, Canada's smallest province after Prince Edward Island, owes its unique personality to its Celtic customs and irresistible charm. Everything is romantic: the fresh, clean sea air, the picturesque landscapes and the maritime history, with its racing schooners and merchant ships.
A majestic symbol of Nova Scotia, the Bluenose II is the province's flagship and Canada's most famous tall ship. As such, she embodies the magic of this Atlantic community's maritime traditions and the quality of early 20th century shipping. This magnificent sailing ship will be a highlight of the Exhibition's opening ceremonies at the Canada Pavilion on the shores of Burrard Cove.
Nova Scotia's economy depends on fast and efficient transportation. The railway has played an important role in the development of Halifax harbour and the small communities along its lines.
