Our Story

When it comes to building prosperity, location and a community with year-over-year growth are important. Our proximity to major transportation infrastructure—Nova Scotia Highway 102, the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, the CN Rail Mainline and the Port of Halifax—offers business the most central strategic location in Nova Scotia. The Elmsdale Business Park is located at exit 8 on Highway 102, just outside Halifax and on the way to Moncton and Charlottetown, with no traffic congestion. Our commercial sector has the benefit of access to local talent and the labour force of our neighboring municipality, Halifax. With a median commute time to work of 25 minutes, including commuting from Halifax, you can spend more time doing the things you love. We offer residents and business owners and their employees the best of both worlds - a mix of rural and urban lifestyles. We have the opportunities and amenities to serve a growing community, including: • a modern sportsplex, with two ice rinks and the largest indoor sports dome east of Montreal, • a planned $17 million aquatics facility, • hundreds of kilometers of motorized and multi-use trails, boating, fishing and outdoor sport opportunities, and • a public transit system planned for 2017.
