Eastern Passage – The Community

Eastern Passage has historically been tied to the fishing industry and its waterfront demonstrates this with multiple small wharves and pier. CFB Shearwater, a military air base, is local to Eastern Passage. New highway connections mean the majority of area residents have easy commuting to Downtown Halifax or Dartmouth.
