Current MLA: Ronnie Chisholm (PC), Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture

District profile: This is a large, rural and sparsely populated riding stretching along the Atlantic coast from Tangier and Sheet Harbour on the Eastern Shore to the town of Canso in the north, then west along the Strait to the port of Mulgrave.

Before 1999, the district was known as Guysborough-Port Hawkesbury and included all of Guysborough County and the towns of Port Hawkesbury and Port Hastings. Today, the riding still includes all of Guysborough County, but excludes those larger urban areas in Inverness County.

The town of Guysborough is the main service centre for the county of Guysborough in the north and derives some business from the Sable Offshore Project and gas plant in Goldboro.

Resource industries such as fishing and forestry remain important, while schools and hospitals are other major employers.
