Roman Catholic Dioceses



There are 3 Roman Catholic Dioceses in Nova Scotia. These include:

  1. Archdiocese of Halifax - Governs Colchester, Cumberland, Halifax, Hants, Lunenburg and Queens counties.
    • The Chancery Office does not make it records available for research purposes. However, most if not all have been microfilmed and are available in that form. Please visit the Archives Web site for more information.

  2. Diocese of Antigonish - Governs the counties of Antigonish, Guysborough, Pictou and the island of Cape Breton.
    • The Antigonish Chancery has no custody of registers, therefore one must approach each parish individually to obtain this information.

  3. Diocese of Yarmouth - Governs the counties of Annapolis, Digby, Kings, Shelburne and Yarmouth.
    • The Yarmouth Chancery has church registers, cemetery inscriptions and some secondary material. The researcher must do his or her own research here as no assistance is available.
