The fisheries are the pillar of the economy. Also and after the establishment of the Gulf Company, agriculture (mainly in the Annapolis Valley) and timber are important activities. A small scale mining activity of iron, coal, lead and zinc is being pursued.
The Gulf of Saint Lawrence Trade and Fishing Company, or Gulf Company for short, a chartered company propriety of the Kirke family and other investors (mainly Irish and Scots) has the monopoly on fur trading, and also acts as a fishing enterprise. For the purpose of encouraging settlement it has exclusive rights assigned to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.
