Operating an Accommodation Business

In today’s competitive and economically challenging environment, it is important for Nova Scotia’s tourism industry to focus on providing quality experiences for our visitors. We are committed to supporting and promoting quality tourist accommodations.

Only accommodations that are licensed and demonstrate quality by meeting current industry standards will be included in Tourism Nova Scotia's provincial marketing and partnership initiatives.

Accommodation operators wishing to participate in tourism marketing and partnership programs are required to have a valid licence under the Tourist Accommodations Act and must demonstrate quality by participating in one of three currently recognized quality accommodation programs.
