Overview and Administration

The Truro Business Park is owned by the Town of Truro and is administered by the Truro Industrial Development Society. Within the Truro Business Park, the Town of Truro is responsible for the maintenance of streets, domestic and storm sewers, water supply systems, street lighting and snow removal from streets. The Town of Truro also has a local municipal police force, the Truro Police Service, and career fire service, the Truro Fire Service, which both provide 24-hour service to the community.


The Park is located near the center of what is now commonly referred to in business and economic development communities as the Halifax-Moncton Growth Corridor, the most populous region in Atlantic Canada. From a more micro point of view, the Park is located south of the Central Business District. It is bounded to the west by Willow Street and the Canadian National Railway mainline; to the east by residential development; and to the south by the Town’s southern border. The Park lies on a fairly level section of land that gradually rises to the east and south. The northern end of the park lies approximately 150 feet above the Salmon River estuary and rises to 250 feet at the southern end of the park. The park has excellent drainage, with surface water draining east into McClures Brook. There is no ponding in the Park and soil conditions in the Park are consistent with the rich agricultural land of the Truro area.

All developed and available lands are fully serviced or serviceable with water, sewer and electrical services. Water and sewer mains within the park are provided by the Town of Truro.
