The Fairbanks Centre, located at the entrance of Shubie Park, serves as the headquarters for the Shubenacadie Canal Commission. A gallery and interpretive center are open to the public (at no charge) during regular business hours, year-round, with exhibits that illustrate the historic Canal Waterway. The building proudly bears the name of the men who dared to dream of a canal to cross our Province from Halifax Harbour to the Bay of Fundy.
