Best of Occasions

Occasions Magazine has been a staple in Nova Scotian homes since 2005. With the impact of COVID-19, we have all changed how we celebrate occasions and connect with one another. This has allowed us to explore new ways to deliver the recipes and content you love safely and through channels we know you prefer and use daily.

As we shift from our print publication, to sharing food & drink inspiration online and through our social channels, we invite you to help us celebrate the #BestofOccasions as we look back on 15 years of food & drink content. Join the conversation on Instagram and Facebook @theNSLC to tell us what your favourite recipes have been over the years and continue to follow along for great food & drink inspiration.

We hope you enjoy these curated favourites from over the years. Thank you for being such loyal and dedicated readers of Occasions. We look forward to continuing to provide great food & drink content for you on our social channels.
