Why Nova Scotia?
Our range of inclinations is unparalleled in North America: on the western edge of the North Atlantic ocean, Spaceport Nova Scotia is clear from launch trajectory path obstructions or hazards and an easy rallying point for transportation, resources, and clients.
It's Rocket Science
Our launch vehicle partners are celebrated for their proven flight heritage and for their engineering, design and mission history. Their launch vehicles are customizable for commercial applications, putting single spacecraft or constellation satellites into low-earth orbit.
Commercial satellites launched from Nova Scotia will collect data, establish communications, and support scientific discovery. We’ll meet enterprise goals with flexible missions, timelines, and component design.
Our managers, engineers, technicians, designers, and mission specialists have launched satellites all over the world. As Canada’s first commercial spaceport, we’re attracting talent, leadership, retention, and economic growth to Nova Scotia.
Stewardship & Safety
The safety and protection of our people, community, and environment is paramount to everything we do. We’ll design, build, and operate our best-in-class facility for a carbon-neutral future with a minimal impact footprint, low emissions, and high transparency.
Construction is underway
We broke ground in 2022—the culmination of years of design, regulatory and environmental study, and government partnerships. In 2023, our launch facility will take shape. We’re capitalizing on Nova Scotia’s excellent geographic positioning to build a world-leading spaceport, a huge benefit to the Canadian space industry and to our national economy. Canada’s first spaceport will create hundreds of jobs and increase Nova Scotia’s GDP by approximately $250M. As highly specialized trades arrive to pour concrete and frame our world-class facility, we’ll share the progress with our community.
