Truro, located in central Nova Scotia, was named the ‘Hub of Nova Scotia’ more than 100 years ago, when the railway between Truro and Halifax was built. Locals could see the new people and employment the railway brought, as well as the potential for more expansion.
Today, Truro is home to about 12,500 people. Local industry includes manufacturing, processing, and warehousing. And, because of the railroad facilities and convergence of the major highways through the town, Truro is a busy distribution centre for the province. Over the years, the success of the manufacturing sector has contributed to the town’s economic stability and the sense of security.
Located 95km north of Halifax, this small town offers a relaxed pace with many opportunities for community involvement. Truro offers residents a full range of goods, services and recreational opportunities, as well as easy access to the many pleasures of Nova Scotia.
Located near the Atlantic Ocean, Truro enjoys a moderate climate with warm summers and mild winters.
