In 1759, New England farmers and fishermen sent agents to Halifax to discuss with Governor Lawrence the settlement of the undeveloped areas of the province. Substantial immigration began in 1760 and, by late 1763, several thousand settlers were established throughout Nova Scotia. They particularly successful in the Minas area, where they took up the fallow lands of the displaced Acadians. By 1780, Edmund Burke could describe the province as "formed by the overflowings of the exuberant population of New England." This influx was to have a significant effect on the character and development were of Nova Scotia.

En 1759, les agents des agriculteurs et des pêcheurs de la Nouvelle- Angleterre vinrent discuter à Halifax avec le gouverneur Lawrence de la colonisation du reste de la province. Dès 1763, des milliers de colons étaient déjà établis dans toute la Nouvelle- Écosse. Ils réussirent très bien dans la région des Mines où ils occupèrent les terres en friche des Acadiens déportés. Cette province, qu'en 1780 Edmund Burke disait «peuplée du trop-plein de l'exubérante population de la Nouvelle- Angleterre», en fut profondément marquée dans son évolution.
