The province announced Feb. 12, it is investing $100,000 for the creation of a Visitor Experience Strategy for the Halifax Harbour islands. The focus will be on Georges and McNabs Islands.
As a first step to unlocking the islands, and in order to understand their potential, Develop Nova Scotia will lead the development of the Visitor Experience Strategy. We are consulting with island partner organizations, business and tourism operators, special interest groups, and the public to determine which island activities are possible.

We encourage anyone with an interest in the islands to tell us what visitor activities we should be exploring. No idea is too big or too small as we consider the future of the islands as an important destination within Nova Scotia.
This strategy is part of the $1.5 million announced in July for the Halifax waterfront under the Tourism Revitalization of Icons Program, administered by Tourism Nova Scotia. The $6 million infrastructure funding program aims to revitalize Nova Scotia’s most compelling tourism sites and creating opportunities for private businesses to develop new excursions and experiences. Five sites have been identified for development over the next three years, including the Halifax waterfront area. Read more here.
