Why choose Canadian citizenship
Nova Scotia 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.
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.
It is very affordable to buy a home in Nova Scotia. The cost of living is actually one of the lowest in Canada. With a population of under 1 million, community is very important in Nova Scotia. The many groups and organizations across the province help strengthen community bonds in every city, town and village. This is one of the reasons Nova Scotians have become known worldwide as happy, friendly, and inviting people.
