About us

As the province’s buy-local program, Select Nova Scotia is responsible for promotions, partnerships and campaigns that raise consumer awareness about Nova Scotia food, food products and seafood; locally made goods; and locally owned and operated businesses.

The program’s primary goal is to help create conditions that fuel the success of local producers, manufacturers and retailers, by encouraging Nova Scotians to shop and buy local.

Select Nova Scotia recognizes that when you buy local, more money stays in the local economy, supporting good jobs; strengthening local businesses; and supporting local communities
