Nova Scotia Language Demographics: Why Multilingual Communications Are Important
Population: 940,482 (estimate @ 2010)
Languages Spoken: English (official)
To the 2006 Canadian census responses to the question concerning 'mother tongue' the most-commonly reported languages were: English (92.53%); French (3.62%); Arabic (0.49%); Mi'kmaq (0.45%); German (0.45%); Chinese (0.37%); Dutch (0.27%); Polish (0.17%); Spanish (0.15%); Greek (0.12%); Italian (0.10%); Korean (0.10%); and, Gaelic (0.10%).
According to the 2001 Canadian census the largest ethnic group in Nova Scotia is Scottish (29.3%), followed by English (28.1%), Irish (19.9%), French (16.7%), German (10.0%), Dutch (3.9%), First Nations (3.2%), Welsh (1.4%), Italian (1.3%), and Acadian (1.2%). Peoples of European descent thus make up approximately 96.8% of the total population. Almost half of respondents (47.4%) identified their ethnicity as "Canadian".
Modern Nova Scotia is a mix of cultures. The government works to support Mi'kmaq, French, Gaelic and African-Nova Scotian culture through the establishment of government secretariats, as well as colleges, educational programs and cultural centres. The province is also eager to attract new immigrants, but has had limited success. The major population centres at Halifax and Sydney are the most cosmopolitan, hosting large Arab populations (in the former) and Eastern European populations (in the latter). The Halifax Regional Municipality hosts a yearly multicultural festival.

We serve the urban area of Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), a major economic centre in eastern Canada with a large concentration of government services and private sector companies. Our technical translation services extend to the business, banking, government and cultural centre of the Maritime region.
We can lend assistance to any of the major employers and economic generators in the Halifax area, including the Department of National Defence, as well as the Port of Halifax and its growing concentration of manufacturing industries and its attendant multi-modal transportation hub (the port, the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, and rail and highway infrastructure).
Other sectors of the HRM employment sector that we are able to serve include major resource industries (agriculture, fishing, mining, forestry and natural gas extraction), the Musquodoboit Valley agricultural district, fishing harbours located along all coastal areas including those managed as small craft harbours under the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Other resource industries in the HRM requiring technical translation services include the natural gas fields off the coast of Sable Island, as well as clay, shale, gold, limestone, and gypsum extraction in rural areas of the mainland portion of the municipality.
Other than topics related to the high concentration of government services in the HRM, we assist Halifax organizations with a wide range of technical document translations in a variety of sectors: accounting; advertising; agriculture; banking & finance; human resources; brewing & distilling; chemicals & fertilizers; construction; engineering; entertainment; the environment; food manufacturing, processing & distribution; general manufacturing; mining; healthcare; high tech & information technology; paper & forestry; insurance; pharmaceuticals & biotechnology; real estate; telecommunications; transportation; and, utilities (gas, electrical & pipelines).
