This page says that the arms were granted in 1974, designed by the College of Arms in London, England. It includes the axe as a long used emblem of the University, two heraldic cushions taken from the arms of main founder James William Johnstone, and wolves heads canting for Wolfville, where the University is located.

The university also uses a more elaborate banner of arms for convocations which displays the contents of the arms counterchanged in white and blue.
