The Nova Scotia Keltics are a rugby team in Halifax, Nova Scotia that compete in the Rugby Canada Super League.

They play their home games alternatively at the Wanderers Grounds and Graves-Oakley Memorial Park.

Although the team hasn't won the MacTier Cup (trophy for league champions), they were runners up in the 1998 (as the Nova Scotia Keiths) and 2000 season.

Defence Minister Peter MacKay made his return at inside centre for the Keltics on May 19, 2008 in a 49-5 away loss to the Niagara Thunder.[1]

Their new Coach is Jack Hanratty who is attempting to revitalize the winning attitude that the team once had. Jack learned to play in Ireland at the Leinster academy.

In 2009, Rugby Canada decided to disband the RCSL and replace it with a new U-20 league called the Rugby Canada National Junior Championship. The Keltics were chosen as one of the remaining RCSL clubs to enter the newly formed league.
