Opening or Growing a Business

The place, people, and perspective that make business flourish

Our strong sense of community, our modern emphasis on sustainability, and our committed citizenry create an atmosphere conducive to business success. 

As a small, university town located in the heart of Nova Scotia’s Fundy Shore region, Acadia University influences our economy, our culture, our environment, and our social fabric. But we’re much more than town and gown.

Our picturesque region also attracts a remarkable number of visitors each year. Attracted by the local artisan food and craft beverage industry that continues to boom, visitors are delighted by our local shops, galleries, festivals, and events. Our downtown streets and shops are busy, year-round.

For those who have put down roots in Wolfville, shopping local is a way of life. Our residents like to walk to stores and services as much as possible. As a hub of activity, there is always a demand for new business in Wolfville.
