Region of Queens Municipality

Queens Coast is truly a centre of opportunities on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Whether you are interested in starting a new business or relocating or expanding a business, Queens Coast is an ideal location with a number of unique advantages.

Less than two hours from Halifax, Queens offers an exceptional quality of rural life with easy access to the city and Halifax Stanfield International Airport. Work life balance is easy here. Our richly diverse Acadian forests, glimmering lakes, powerful rivers and exquisite coastline offer an abundance of opportunities for outdoor adventurists, nature lovers and sport enthusiasts. For the less outdoorsy, there is a rich arts and cultural community, including the Astor Theatre, NS’s oldest performing arts venue still in operation, as well as Queens Place Emera Centre which hosts world class sporting and music events. In addition, we have a hospital and other important health services; safe communities; recreation centres; affordable housing; low commercial tax rates; a new, modern municipal planning strategy in development; and by 2022, high-speed internet will be available in 97% of the county. Our community is growing as more and more families move to the area and new businesses open their doors.
