About the Program

To register your accommodation for Nova Scotia Approved, please click here.

The quality standards were developed after extensive collaboration with representatives of fixed-roof accommodations, campgrounds and Tourism Nova Scotia.

Nova Scotia Approved provides the licensed accommodation operator, with a quality program option that is not a rating system. Nova Scotia Approved is a benchmark of quality standards focused on cleanliness and state of repair.

Once you complete the online application, your property will be receive an unannounced visit by our Quality Coach who will assess your property based on the Nova Scotia Approved benchmarks of quality standards.

When your property meets the benchmarks of quality standards, and if you hold a valid Tourist Accommodations Licence, you will then be eligible to participate in tourism partnership programs, sponsored by Tourism Nova Scotia.

For information about partnership and program opportunities as well as some helpful tools for your business please visit the Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia website.
