Welcome to Yarmouth
The Town of Yarmouth is the regional centre of South Western Nova Scotia. The Town's population of 7200 people literally doubles on weekdays with the influx of workers and students from surrounding areas. Yarmouth is the financial, business, education, and lifestyle centre for the 70,000 people who live in the tri-counties of Yarmouth, Digby and Shelburne.
The port of Yarmouth, located in the heart of the world's largest lobster fishing grounds, is central to Yarmouth's history and development. With Canada's most lucrative fishing industry, Yarmouth and the Acadian Shores have a culture and economy historically tied to fishing and related industries.
As you look back through Yarmouth's history one can't help but notice that Yarmouth's citizens and businesses have always seen the importance of taking pride in their community and how it is presented to those who live and visit here. The distinctive architecture within Yarmouth, old and new, and the parks and trails in Yarmouth show the pride we take in our community. Yarmouth has taken this one step further over the last several years by participating in Communities in Bloom.
