3 2 1.0 Introduction Agriculture in the Local Economy Lunenburg County is home to a variety of farm production activities from greenhouse, nursery and floriculture production to vegetable and melon farming. This agricultural diversity and innovation is important to economic development in Lunenburg County. In 2010, Lunenburg County farms reported a total of approximately $25.3 million in farm receipts which accounted for 4.25% of all receipts reported in Nova Scotia. In the same year, farms in Lunenburg County reported a total business operating expense of approximately $23.4 million. Thus, agriculture in Lunenburg produced a surplus of $1.9 million. In regard to employment, health care, trade, manufacturing, and natural resources are the dominant industries in the Southern region. Although employment in agriculture in Lunenburg is lower than in other industries, agriculture remains a significant sector to the local economy. The emerging industry of agri-tourism benefits the local economy and promotes local agriculture. Agri-tourism projects in Lunenburg County include farmers markets, U-picks, wineries, and the annual exhibition. Despite an increase in farms since 2006, Lunenburg County experienced a decrease in the number of acres used for farming purposes. Indeed, Lunenburg County ranks eighth among all counties in regard to its use of arable land ( Lunenburg County, para. 3). With 10% of arable land being used for agricultural production, Lunenburg falls below the provincial average of 13% ( Lunenburg County, para. 3). It is clear that agriculture remains a vital industry to the economy in Lunenburg and will continue to play its role in the future of Nova Scotia s economy.

4 3 2.0 Population and Population Change Between the years 2006 and 2011, Lunenburg County experienced a total population growth of 0.3% or a total of 163 people. Table 1 demonstrates that, for the most part, Lunenburg experienced an increase in population across all census subdivisions. The only areas to experience a decrease were the municipalities of Chester, Lunenburg and the town of Lunenburg with a population decline of 1.3%, 0.2% and 0.2% respectively. Lunenburg County s rate of population change (0.3%) fell below that of Nova Scotia s (0.9%). Table 1: Population of Lunenburg and Census Subdivisions, Area % Change Lunenburg County 47,313 47, Chester (Municipality) 10,599 10, Lunenburg (Municipality) 25,118 25, Bridgewater (Town) 8,241 7, Lunenburg (Town) 2,313 2, Mahone Bay (Town) Gold River (Reserve) Pennal (Reserve) The population of Lunenburg County is predominately concentrated in rural regions. Since 2006, rural regions experienced a population decline of approximately 0.5% while the population centres experienced a population increase of approximately 3%. Table 2: Lunenburg County, Rural 1 and Population Centres 2, Population % of Total Population % of Total Rural 35, , Population Centre 11, , Total 47, , In this case, rural refers to municipalities and reserves. 2 Population centre refers to an area of at least 1,000 and no fewer than 400 persons per square kilometer. Beginning in 2011, the term population centre replaces the term urban area from previous censuses.

5 4 3.0 Economic Profile In 2013, the Southern region (including Digby, Yarmouth, Queens, Shelburne, and Lunenburg) 3 represented approximately 15% of the agricultural industry in Nova Scotia. Although, an estimate for Lunenburg County is not specifically given, the data indicates that its geographic region is an important component to the agricultural industry in Nova Scotia. In comparison to the other industries in the Southern region, agriculture accounted for approximately 1.63% of all jobs in the region, which is higher than the provincial average of 1.17%. The industries with the highest employment in the Southern region were trade, health care and social assistance, manufacturing and natural resources (i.e. forestry, fishing, etc.).

The Southern region includes Digby, Yarmouth, Queens, Shelburne, and Lunenburg counties. According to the Labour Force Survey Estimates (LFS), some areas are too small to enable production of independent estimates from the survey. Thus, smaller regions with similar economic characteristics are grouped together.
