About

A thriving community is a powerful thing.

For our communities to reach their full potential they need partnership, support, and platforms for growth. Build Nova Scotia believes that by working together, we can ensure the projects and places that matter most to Nova Scotians are brought to life in ways that improve our home and enrich our lives.

By planning, designing, building, and operating strategic infrastructure that supports economically vibrant, sustainable, and inclusive communities, Build Nova Scotia is working to steward projects that drive our economy forward. As a provincial Crown corporation, we develop strategic economic infrastructure that supports a healthy, connected, and thriving Nova Scotia.

We build stuff—but the core function of what we build is guided by opportunities to transform our province’s lands and properties in ways that stimulate economic development and improve quality of life for all Nova Scotians. This includes managing the addition and renewal of infrastructure that keeps Nova Scotians healthy, connected, and thriving no matter where they live.
