There isn't much in the way of sports locally.
Truro has three ice hockey rinks and is home to the Truro Bearcats. Canadian football is also popular with games being played on Friday nights at the Truro Amateur Athletic Club. There is a minor lacrosse association, the Truro Bearcats Lacrosse Association, which allows youth to take part in organized lacrosse teams and games. As well, there is a junior A lacrosse team, the Mi'Kmaq Warriors, that plays in the East Coast Junior Lacrosse League. They play in the summer months out of the Colchester Legion Stadium.
There is limited health care.
Truro is home to the Colcester East Hants Health Centre, which has inpatient units and operates a wide range of clinics and satellite services. There are also multiple medical clinics and services throughout the Town.
Its far away from everything.
Truro is approximately just a one-hour drive from the City of Halifax, Amherst and New Glasgow. It is perfectly centred between all major centres in Nova Scotia.
There are limited educational facilities within Truro.
Truro has two public high schools, Cobequid Educational Centre and the francophone École acadienne de Truro. Post-secondary options include a campus of the Nova Scotia Community College, and The Institute of Human Services Education, as well as the Agricultural Campus of Dalhousie University in the neighbouring village of Bible Hill.
