State of Nova Scotia's Coast Report

The State of Nova Scotia's Coast Report gives an overview of the condition of our coastal areas and resources. The report describes physical, ecological, and socio-economic characteristics of the coast, and examines six priority coastal issues in detail.

From the information in the report and feedback from coastal stakeholders, the Nova Scotia Government will develop a Sustainable Coastal Development Strategy. This strategy will serve as the road-map for addressing the coastal issues that matter most to Nova Scotians. 

The report materials are available in three levels of detail:  

1. Summary report

2. Fact sheets, which provide more specific detail on each of the six priority issues:

3. Full technical report also available by chapter
