This is a place where seafaring people found shelter from the
harshness of the Northwest Atlantic.It is the most easterly point of mainland Nova Scotia, remote
and exposed upon Chedabucto peninsula, yet close to the fishing banks so important to the Nova Scotian economy.
As you make your way along the harbour imagine the days
when schooners were at the dock and men piled cod into barrels.
The walk leads to Grassy Island National Historic Site and Interpretive Centre. There you can discover the story of the early
fishing industry in Canso.
Canso est un endroit où les marins venaient s'abriter des rigueurs de L'Atlantique Nord-ouest. C'est le point le plus à l'est de la partie continentale de la Nouvelle-Écosse, isolé et exposé sur la péninsule de Chedabucto, et pourtant proche des bancs de pêche si importants pour l'économie de la Nouvelle-Écosse.

Pendant que vous suivez la promenade du port, imaginez des goélettes à quai et des hommes en train de charger de la morue dans des barils.

La promenade mène au lieu historique national et centre d'interprétation de I'lle-Grassyde. Vous y apprendrez



comment a commercé l'industrie de la pêche à Canso.
