Anyone who visits Canso sees the scenic beauty and rich history of this picturesque ocean town. Over four hundred years of heritage come together in "Mainland North America's oldest seaport".

Quaint shops and museums abound and many enjoy a visit to the Canso Islands National Historic Site.

Stroll on the waterfront and soak in the four centuries of history or enjoy the premiere music festival: The Stan Rogers Folk Festival." This three day event brings in performers and festival participants from all over the Maritimes and Canada.
