The highest tides in the world occur in Cobequid Bay—some recorded at over 52 feet.

On May 20, 2011, the Province of Nova Scotia and Dalhousie University launched a process to merge Nova Scotia Agricultural College (NSAC) with Dalhousie University. The merger itself was effective September 1, 2012.

The two schools have had a close academic relationship for many years. NSAC degrees were jointly awarded by Dalhousie and NSAC was represented on the Dalhousie Senate. As Dalhousie’s new Faculty of Agriculture, these and many ongoing research collaborations between faculty at both institutions will be built upon to benefit both communities.
