Internet cafes don’t exist in Nova Scotia like in many parts of the world but you can still check your email while travelling.

Many hotels will offer broadband internet access, both wired and wireless, for free.

You can also log onto wireless hotspots or Wi-Fi networks at many coffee shops. If you bring a laptop, there shouldn’t be any shortage of chances to make good use of it.

Computers for public use are also dotted around the province, often for free or with just a small charge.

They’re marked by signs with the [email protected] symbol. It stands for Community Access Program. Find the site nearest you by calling 1-866-569-8428.

Nova Scotia also has 75 public libraries with internet access for visitors. Opening hours for both these and the [email protected] centres can be limited, however.
