In this research, we examine the projected impacts, both locally and nationally, on sectors such as construction, transportation, tourism, and professional, scientific, and technical services to be generated through the initial building and ongoing commercial activities of Spaceport Nova Scotia.
What levels of job creation and wages will the project produce, both in its early construction phases and once operations are fully ramped up, for Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada? Would the presence of a spaceport in Nova Scotia significantly impact Canada’s reputation as a hub for research and innovation, inspiring additional development and investment? How will GDP and government revenues be affected?
