The District of Guysborough

Natural Advantages

It covers more than 2,000 square kilometres at the north-east corner of mainland Nova Scotia and has natural advantages that set it apart from just about every other place you can think of.

The local government, the Municipality of the District of Guysborough, strives to be responsive, progressive, approachable, and focused on serving the people and businesses who are here, and thinking about coming.

There is room here to grow; clean air to breathe; unspoiled natural beauty and smart, resilient, friendly and welcoming people.  A port to rival any with land to spare, minerals, energy, and the fish and forests that have sustained generations. Always worth a visit, you’re welcome to stay.
