The following is a list of the Governors and Lieutenant Governors of Nova Scotia. Though the present day office of the Lieutenant Governor in Nova Scotia came into being only upon the province's entry into Canadian Confederation in 1867, the post is a continuation from the first governorship of Nova Scotia in 1710.
