Who we Are

About Friends of Oak Island Society

The Friends of Oak Island Society (FOIS) is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 with a mission to foster historical interest in Oak Island. Our first public tours were offered in the Summer of 2010, and since then FOIS has been proud to play an important role in not only promoting the Island, but in  promoting the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia.


Part of The Friends of Oak Island Society’s tremendous success lies in its dedicated and amazing team of local volunteers. From our Board of Directors, to our Tour Escorts, to the Gift Shop Staff - volunteers are at the heart of everything we do!


FOIS is extremely proud of developments and enhancements it has made over the years, continually striving to create the best possible visitor experience. FOIS was also instrumental in the establishment of a Visitor Centre which has since grown into the Oak Island Interpretative Centre.
