The Hub of Nova Scotia is Truro's nickname, and it truly makes and it does live to its expectation as it is located right there in central Nova Scotia.

The Town is also the center of a major railway, ever since the days of the old Intercolonial Railway, which makes Truro a must-pass-through destination for people traveling up and down Nova Scotia. It has a very mix and rich economy, nowadays The Brookfield Dairy Company is one of the Town's major employer, then there is Stanfield's Textile Mills which is the oldest employer in Truro, dating back to 1870.

Much like the cultural scene, the Education scene isn't much better, the town is pretty limited in primary, secondary and post-secondary education. The Town has only two public high schools which are Cob equid Educational Center and a Francophone institution called École Acadienne de Truro.
