|Facility:||Georges National Historic Site of Canada|
|Description:||Georges Island, a small drumlin located in the middle of Halifax harbour, was shaped by glaciers which swept Nova Scotia thousands of years ago. Its strategic location and glacial till made it ideally suited to becoming the heart of the seaward defences for Halifax's important naval base.
Today, Parks Canada is responsible for the preservation and stabilization of the cultural resources on Georges Island.
This National Historic Site of Canada is part of the Halifax Defence Complex.
