Explore Fees

The Province of Nova Scotia has approximately 1,400 user fees across its various departments. These fees, which generate approximately $258 million in revenue, apply to most services, licensing and regulatory functions.

The concept behind user fees is that the user of a particular service pays some or all of the cost, as opposed to all taxpayers. These fees are wide-ranging and include things like driver’s license renewals, museum admission fees, environmental assessments, and fishing licenses.

For a comprehensive list of user fees, take a look at our User Fees and Government Charges 2014-2015 book.
