Our entrepreneurship game is strong in Lunenburg County! People are making jewelry and jellies, essential oils, technology and everything in-between. You can learn about some of our amazing entrepreneurs who have chosen Lunenburg County to create a life they love here, here and here.
We have a flourishing manufacturing industry. If you've flown on a Boeing Aircraft, chances are, one or more of the parts was manufactured in Lunenburg. If you've ever played an EA Sports Cricket video game on a Playstation, it was as well. Those Michelin tires you're driving on? Those were made in Bridgewater. We're also growing cranberries, making beer and wine, creating websites, fabricating metals and fiberglass. If you've eaten a Filet-O-Fish sandwich from McDonalds, that was produced here too. And that ship on your dime - Bluenose Schooner- we made that too!
And fun fact- the villain in the Hunger Games, Donald Sutherland, we made him too, so to speak.
If you're a teacher, we have fantastic schools that have helped produce brilliant students and productive citizens. If you're a healthcare professional, our doctors are leaders in innovative best practices.
Some of our residents work in the city, and commute the hour to Halifax. A common phrase you'll hear a commuter say is, "It's not that bad!" You'll not hear that everywhere! But it's true. They'll say, "It's just long enough to get in the right headspace for work, and by the time I'm home, I've forgotten about the issues of the day. "
