Nova Scotia Government's Open Data Portal
Making government data easier to access for individuals, businesses, and researchers
The Open Data Portal is part of our vision for an open and accountable government. By continuing to make this data available we hope to draw on the collective knowledge and innovation of the people of Nova Scotia to help grow our economy and improve the lives of those around us.
Due to the popularity of the historical records on the Open Data Portal two new datasets have now been added that include records from the Court of Appeals Casebooks (1885 –1900) and Nova Scotia Land Papers (1765-1800).
Statistics Canada’s 2016 second quarter report indicates the population in Nova Scotia has grown to its highest amount ever due in part to an increase in immigration. You can view data on Nomination Certificates from NS Immigration on the Open Data Portal.
Summer is a wonderful time of year to explore Nova Scotia’s beautiful natural spaces. There is also a growing interest in Lyme disease during this season. The annual rates for Lyme disease are tracked by Health and Wellness and highlighted in these charts. For more information visit their page on Lyme disease.
