Description This riding is in the southwest corner of Nova Scotia and comprises the counties of Shelburne and Lunenburg, the region of Queens and a small part of Halifax region. Major communities in the riding include Lunenburg, Lockeport, Bridgewater and Shelburne, as well as four native reserves.

Shelburne has one of the largest natural harbours in the world and Lunenburg is home of the famous fishing schooner, the Bluenose. In recent years, Lunenburg County has become known as the Christmas Tree Capital of Canada. The major industry in the riding is manufacturing with some fishing and a small forestry industry.

Almost 97 per cent of the population cite English as their mother tongue. The total immigrant population is slightly more than four per cent, according to the 2001 census. The average family income is $52,215 with unemployment of 10.4 per cent.

In 2004, eight per cent of Halifax West was added in the southeast and the riding was renamed South Shore-St. Margaret's. The riding of South Shore was established in 1966 from a major part of Queens-Lunenburg and parts of Shelburne-Yarmouth-Clare and Halifax. In the 1996 redistribution, Seal Island moved into West Nova.

Population: 83,803
