The rural Municipality of the District of Shelburne is a unique coastal community. We are rich in cultural, historic, economic and natural diversity. Together with our Loyalist roots, fishing industries, small business economy, community services and self-reliance we have shaped our character.

You can canoe or camp along our lakes and rivers, paddle or surf in the ocean, sail in our harbour, walk or ride our extensive trail system or sit back and do some bird watching. It is a quality of life that complements professionals, retirees and working families lifestyles.
