Things to do

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.

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.”
