Imagine a map of Nova Scotia without place names. Not only would you have a difficult time locating various communities, you would also lose the rich heritage of those who came before us. Each name tells a story and provides a sense of place as well as a link between location and a point on the map.
There are more than 28 000 official names in Nova Scotia, including 2800 community names. From Cape North to Brier Island and from Clark's Harbour to Tidnish, the names reflect First Nation, French, English and a host of other cultures who have inhabited this province.
Please enjoy this easy to application. All you need to start with is a place name.
