Corporate | Waterfront Development
Together, we are building waterfronts that are experiential and economic hubs for all Nova Scotians.

With oversight and direction from our high-calibre Board of Directors, Waterfront Development works in the following core business areas:

Waterfront Planning 

We engage with public and private organizations, as well as the public at large, to plan projects that contribute to the development of world-class waterfronts, maintaining continuous public access to the water’s edge.

Infrastructure Development

Our multi-year development projects attract investment and enhance the waterfront as a key destination for residents and visitors.

Commercial Marine/Real Estate Management 

Our portfolio includes approximately 120 acres of waterfront real estate in Dartmouth, Bedford, Lunenburg, and Halifax—including many of the most-visited places in Nova Scotia.

Business Development 

Our waterfront assets are leveraged as a platform for private sector investment, enabling businesses large and small to showcase their products and services to the world.

Our Mandate: Waterfront Development exists for the purpose of redeveloping and revitalizing the lands surrounding Halifax Harbour and any other lands designated by its shareholder, the Province of Nova Scotia.

Working with partners we have received a number of recognitions over the years.
