Atlantic (UTC-4). This is one hour ahead of the heavily populated Eastern time zone, making it easier to conduct business with the US and Europe on the same business day.


Nova Scotia has been officially designated “Canada’s warmest Province.”  It lies in the northern temperate zone where the influence of the sea moderates the climate and helps Nova Scotia escape much of the coldest winter weather.  The summers are comfortably warm and the autumns are beautiful.

Nova Scotia’s culture has deep roots within several “founding cultures” – the Mikmaq First Nation, French, Scottish, English, Irish and African. These were later supplemented by settlers from the United States, and, in recent times, by immigrants from around the world. The result is a fascinating blend of people known for their honesty, enterprise and good nature – qualities that also characterize the Nova Scotia business community.
