Founded in 1976 as the Waterfront Development Corporation Limited, it was originally tasked with revitalising post-industrial waterfront land in Halifax and Dartmouth. In 2001, WDCL absorbed another provincial corporation, the Bedford Waterfront Development Corporation.[1]

The corporation was renamed Develop Nova Scotia in July 2018 when its mandate was expanded to encompass strategic economic infrastructure and property projects across the province.[2] The provincial government subsequently introduced legislation to formalise the changes. The Develop Nova Scotia Act was passed in September 2018 and received royal assent in October 2018.[3][4]
