Yarmouth

The Town of Yarmouth is the regional center of South Western Nova Scotia, Canada. The Town, with a population base of approximately 7,200 people, serves the financial business and community needs of some 70,000 people who live in the tri-counties of Yarmouth, Digby, and Shelburne.

With regular ferry crossings to Bar Harbor and Portland, Maine, on North America's largest catamaran, "The Cat", and two 100 series highways, the Town is known as the International Gateway to the Province.

The local economy is supported by a broad range of business, service, and industrial employers of long standing. The Town also houses regional health, educational, and provincial government facilities, including the Yarmouth Regional Hospital, which employs in excess of 800 full and part time employees.

As the largest convention center west of Halifax, the Town annually hosts major events such as fisheries, exhibitions, lifestyle home shows, as well as the annual agricultural fair.

Nature lovers will find Yarmouth to be the perfect starting point for hiking, fishing and seafaring adventures, while cultural enthusiasts can discover a bounty of local music, theatre, crafts, museums, galleries and historic architecture.
