LIVING IN WALLACE, NOVA SCOTIA

In the original Mi’kmaq language, the fishing and hunting community of Wallace was called Remsheg, meaning “the place between.” Today, remnants of the Mi’kmaq habitation are visible reminders of native and first European settlers, making Wallace, Nova Scotia a seaside village with a diverse cultural heritage.

Located on the northern coastline of Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Strait, our rural area consists of small communities scattered around Wallace Bay and include Fox Harbor, Malagash and Kerrs Mill. Our coastal area is also blessed with all the beauty that comes with unspoiled ocean frontage. While known for beautiful sunrises, our sunsets are equally breathtaking.

Those who share a passion for natural beauty, outdoor experiences and a keen interest in Nova Scotia’s fauna will feel much at home in Wallace. Our rich tidal marshes and other wetlands are a haven for many birds; over 168 species have been identified in the area. For incredible birding opportunities, The Wallace Bay National Wildlife Area is a sanctuary where many can be viewed. Our coastline is a marvellous mixture of rugged cliffs and meandering rivers, providing great opportunities for outdoor adventures including canoeing, kayaking, hiking and even taking a dip in the warm summer waters of our many beaches.
