Nova Scotia is one of Canada's three Maritime provinces.  It was recognized by Royal charter in 1632.  Nova Scotia is Canada's second-smallest province in area after Prince Edward Island.  The capital is Halifax.  The province's mainland is the Nova Scotia peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, including numerous bays and estuaries.  Nowhere in Nova Scotia is more than 67 km (42 mi) from the ocean.  Cape Breton Island, a large island to the northeast of the Nova Scotia mainland, is also part of the province, as is Sable Island, a small island notorious for its shipwrecks, approximately 175 km (110 mi) from the province's southern coast.
