Head South...Way South
To South Western Nova Scotia – your new home and rewarding career in health services.

Don’t just head south for the winter – head south forever! With fulfilling career opportunities
and the promise of tranquil living, South Western Nova Scotia offers a unique experience. Here's Why

 

Live the Dream

As one of Atlantic Canada’s best kept secrets, South West Nova invites you to discover the
serenity of living and working in one of its characteristically charming communities.
Located on the most southerly tip of Nova Scotia, this attractive region hugs the coast,
creating a soothing climate of mild winters and hot, breezy summers.

 Whether you arrive by boat, car or plane, once you step foot on one of our region’s relaxing,
sandy beaches or brilliant rugged shores, you’ll instantly feel yourself come alive as you
 breathe in the fresh salt air. Looking around, you’ll marvel at the beauty and delight in the
many scenic vistas around each corner. And later, as you wander through lush forests and stroll
down friendly main streets, you’ll soon realize that South West Nova isn’t just another
tourist attraction -- it’s a community that really treasures life.

Ties That Bind

"I chose South Western Nova Scotia, because I like the lifestyle -- it is a great place to raise children.
Because our communities are close knit, I see staff going above and
beyond the call of duty to help our patients."
--
Donna Braun, Pharmacist.

Beauty Abound

"I love the community, it's beautiful and the people are friendly and outgoing.
Not to mention that I love my working environment -- the people I work with are excellent!"
--
Michelle Hilliard, RN

Safe, clean and friendly, the inspiring communities of South West Nova offer an array
of activities to suit any lifestyle. And, whether you arrive single, or with a partner or family,
we’re confident you’ll discover many reasons to stay.

"I moved to Nova Scotia from Calgary, Alberta, because I wanted to
live and work in a smaller urban or rural setting. Nova Scotia has proven to be a beautiful
place to work and live. I love the harbours, the quiet public beaches and the hilly forest
landscape. I am originally from rural New Brunswick and having lived in a large city for the past
 eight years I have developed a better appreciation for the quietude rural living offers.
As well, I have met many warm and neighbourly people since moving to Nova Scotia, which
has helped me to feel that I am part of a first-rate community." --
Robin Swift, Psychologist
