Bridgewater has long been known as the Main Street of the South Shore and the community embraces its reputation as a "Business Friendly" town.
Positive and supportive attitudes toward nurturing business development are shared by both Town Council and Town staff, and are reflected in fair and open policies respecting the establishment and operation of businesses within Bridgewater. At all times, the Town endeavours to meet the needs of both entrepreneurs and established business concerns, whether working with a small proprietorship or multi-national firm.
Bridgewater is the fastest-growing community of its size in Nova Scotia. Our community's location in the heart of the LaHave River Valley in Lunenburg County is less than an hour's travel time from Halifax and 70 minutes from Stanfield International Airport.
The booming economic buzz in Bridgewater and the surrounding rural beauty has helped to attract and support business investment and partnerships over the past decade.
A central Economic Centre, located at 373 King Street, houses all the economic development leaders of the South Shore, each ready to accommodate your business and help you excel with your business ideas. Those partner organizations work with the Town of Bridgewater, in particular our Planning and Engineering departments to help nurture and ripen Bridgewater's pro-business environment.
