Subsidiary of Emera Inc.

Subsidiary of Emera Inc.


Emera is our parent company, an international energy firm headquartered in Halifax.

Emera grew from the holding company that was formed following the privatization of Nova Scotia Power in 1992. Today, Emera companies and investments are working in Canada, the USA and in four Caribbean countries.

Emera is shareholder-owned and publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and is the sole owner of Nova Scotia Power. Emera is not publicly regulated, but most of its subsidiary operating companies, like Nova Scotia Power, are. Because of this difference in governance, the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (UARB) governs our interactions with Emera and its affiliates to ensure any work done for us, or by us, is in the best interest of our customers.

Our relationship with Emera, and its growth and status in the energy sector, has allowed Nova Scotia to benefit from investments that have added new renewable energy to our province, reduced emissions from power plants and made them more efficient, and improved customer service and reliability.

Nova Scotia Power’s interactions with affiliates are governed by an Affiliate Code of Conduct issued by the Utility and Review Board. Read our Affiliate Code of Conduct.
