Eastern Passage Real Estate Listings and Information

Eastern Passage

Eastern Passage has historically been tied to the fishing industry and its waterfront demonstrates this with multiple small wharves and piers. The construction of CFB Shearwater, a military air base, at the northern boundary of the community during World War I, along with the construction of the Imperial Oil (later Esso), Texaco (later Ultramar) oil refinery, theVolvo Halifax Assembly plant and automobile import/export facility following World War II redefined the local economy. New highway connections have resulted in the majority of area residents commuting to Downtown Halifax or Dartmouth.
