Rewarding career, exceptional lifestyle
Historic Guysborough is located at the head of beautiful Chedabucto Bay, along the scenic northeastern shore of Guysborough County.
The community has everything you need for daily family life: grocery store, bank, post office, restaurants, coffee shop, service station and more. It’s also home to high-quality schools — Chedabucto Education Centre and Guysborough Academy — as well as RCMP and Emergency Health Services stations. Guysborough residents enjoy low property taxes and affordable housing.
Enjoy long stretches of white sand beach or pebbled and rocky shores that are a beachcomber’s delight! Inlets and harbours, coves and rivers dot our 400 kms of stunning coastline. Explore by kayak, canoe — or motorized watercraft from our fully equipped marina, where you’ll find sailing lessons and berths for private vessels.
