Bay of Fundy - ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE NOVA SCOTIA OCEAN SECTOR

The report entitled "Economic Impact of the Nova Scotia Ocean Sector 2002-2006" shows that the ocean sector's contribution to the provincial GDP increased from 14.5 to 15.5 per cent between 2001 and 2006. Ocean activity created nearly 30,000 direct jobs in 2006 and, with spin-off effects, the
number doubled to over 60,000 jobs or 13.9 per cent of total employment in the Province. The report is available at http://gov.ns.ca/econ/publications/oceanindustries/default.asp.
