Welcome to the highland heart of Nova Scotia! Antigonish is a small town, rich in Gaelic history, nestled in the northeastern part of the province. Aside from its Gaelic and Acadian roots, being home to one of Canada’s most prestigious universities adds diversity to its population. Aside from the beauty of St. Francis Xavier University, the county is full of rolling hills and beautiful farms and is surrounded by lovely beaches. Take advantage of outdoor activities on Keppoch Mountain or stop by the original shop of Peace by Chocolate, established by a Syrian refugee family, to spread peace to the world with every bar of chocolate.
