Choose Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia offers a quality of life that is disappearing in much of North America, allowing its residents to keep everything in perspective: work, family, relaxation and responsibility.

More than 7,400 kilometres of coastline.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by the natural beauty of the rolling sea, lush green forests, lakes and farmland. All of this, combined with our growing cities and low cost of living, makes Nova Scotia one of the most enjoyable places to live in Canada.

Family friendly

It is no wonder that so many Nova Scotians living abroad return home to raise their families. Nova Scotia’s slow pace means families are able to spend more time together and participate in the many fun activities offered throughout the province. Children are also lucky to be able to play outside and walk safely to schools located close to their homes.

Affordable living

It is very affordable to buy a home in Nova Scotia. The cost of living is actually one of the lowest in Canada.

In 2011, the average value of a home in Nova Scotia was $201,991, compared to $345,182 for all of Canada.
