Middle Sackville is a suburban community located in Nova Scotia's Halifax Regional Municipality. The community was named after Lionel Sackville, 1st Duke of Dorset.

Geography[edit]

Middle Sackville is located immediately north of Lower Sackville and south of Upper Sackville. It is one of several communities situated in Census Subdivision C, which experienced a 7% population growth rate between 1996-2001.

History[edit]

As a result of its unincorporated status until 1996, Middle Sackville and adjacent unincorporated communities such as Lower Sackville and Upper Sackville did not benefit from appropriate planning and are an example of urban sprawl.

The first Mexican Canadian settlement in Nova Scotia was located in Middle Sackville at Burrito Hill.
