In Nova Scotia, you’re never more than 67 km away from the coast. That means beaches, coastal trails and incredible paddling are all right outside your door and waiting to be explored. Pretty sweet place for remote work, right?
There’s never been a better time to live in Nova Scotia. See why.
Your Dream is Within Reach
Nova Scotia is among the most affordable places to live in Canada. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), in October 2020 the average price of a Nova Scotia home was $304,590 compared to the national average of $607,250. In Halifax: $388,418. In Toronto? $897,700.
Must-haves, plus lots of nice to haves
Nova Scotia is at the edge of the country but you can still feel like you’re in the middle of the action. The city of Halifax is thriving. The province boasts trend-setting restaurants, wineries and craft breweries. You’ll find a thriving arts and culture scene here. And Nova Scotia is home to world-class infrastructure, from the architecturally celebrated Halifax Public Library to the award-winning international airport
Your community. Your peace of mind
Nova Scotia is a welcoming place to call home, no matter who you are. Here, children walk to school and play outside. And you can rest easy knowing you and your family are safe. Plus, Nova Scotia’s actions to limit the spread of COVID-19 have kept per capita infection rates among the lowest in the country.
Stay connected on the coast
Working from home? All you need is a reliable, high speed Internet connection. Nova Scotia was one of the first provinces in Canada to roll out an extensive fibre-to-the home network. Today, more than 70% of the province has access to broadband with 97% coverage expected by 2022. Plus, as the landing spot for a New York-London transatlantic fibre optic cable, Nova Scotia Internet users enjoy ultra low latency rates.
Yeah. There’s more
Still not convinced? There are many more reasons to live in Nova Scotia, especially if you’re working remotely. The weather: warm, seabreezy summers and mild winters. The time zone: work with Europe in the morning and the west coast in the afternoon. Pre-primary for four-year-olds. Plus you get to call yourself a “bluenoser.”
