Havre Boucher Nova Scotia



Havre Boucher is situated ten kilometers west of the Canso Causeway in Northeastern Nova Scotia. It is a coastal village of approximately two-thousand residents.

There is some discontent on how the village of Havre Boucher recieved its name. One argument is “Boucher” is derived from the French word bouche, which translates to blocked or closed. This may relate to the geography of the area because the harbour entrance is almost closed by an island. It is also said that the village of Havre Boucher recieved its name from an ocean voyager that found refuge there during a harsh winter in the middle of the 18th century.
