Welcome to Westport
The village of Westport, Nova Scotia is the only community on Brier Island. First settled in 1769, Westport is a traditional working fishing village and has always made it's fortunes from the sea which surrounds it. With a current population of over 200 permanent residents, most who make their living fishing, Westport stands as a prime example of the industrious and friendly nature of the Nova Scotian people.
Many services are available in the village including a general store with gas pumps, gifts shops, two churches, fish processing plant, fire department, elementary school, library, post office and a small laundromat. We invite you to become a part of our community, whether for a day or a lifetime. Welcome to Westport!
