Life Under Our Maple Leaf

Since the late 19th-century, Nova Scotia beckoned groups of wealthy families, who traveled by train and steamer to their grand seaside Victorian "cottages" from many of the north-eastern United States and across the sea from European countries.

Little has changed in more than a 100 years in this beautiful province on the North Atlantic;  the atmosphere is still somewhat staid, unhurried and family-oriented. The pristine coast is uncrowded and less developed than anywhere in North America and the real estate still costs just a fraction of that in the rest of Canada, the United States and Europe.

Nova Scotia is shaped like a lobster with its claws grasping toward the remote province of Newfoundland and its tail pointing in the direction of New York and Boston. It's name is Latin for "New Scotland," named for its resemblance to the homeland; by some its first European settlers.  This province is left with the various historical marks from it's ancestral Scottish,  Irish,  French and British settlers with pockets of their cultures remaining unaltered, even today.
Nova Scotia boasts 3,600-miles of craggy shoreline sprinkled with scenic fishing villages and quaint small towns. It has long been a destination for vacationers and retirees from throughout Canada; to experience its seductive beauty, rich history, slow pace and of course affordable real estate.
Nova Scotia is one of those places that can seduce you through its sheer natural beauty. The seemingly endless stretches of picturesque coastline, a lush green countryside, the beautiful colours of autumn, and the friendliness of its people make it one of the most livable places in North America. Nova Scotia has a bit of something for everyone: old-world European architecture, everything is close to the water, New England-style charm, leisure opportunities and slow-paced towns that haven't changed much in the last century.

Nowhere in Nova Scotia is the official label "Canada's Ocean Playground" more pronounced than on  along the South Shore with its countless beaches; drive the picturesque Lighthouse Route and yopu can't miss it. Despite property prices increasing around the world, property here remains a fraction of what one would pay for similar real estate almost anywhere else in Canada; all surrounded by some of the world's most spectacular scenery, a relatively temperate climate and a stress-free lifestyle.  

 Life looks good under our Maple Leaf.

Canadian Hertitage

To thee we brought our hopes, our dreams,
For thee we stand together,
Our land of peace, where proudly flies,
The Maple Leaf forever.

Long may it wave, and grace our own,
Blue skies and stormy weather,
Within my heart, above my home,
The Maple Leaf forever!

O, Maple Leaf around the world,
You speak as you rise high above,
Of courage, peace and quiet strength,
Of the Canada that I love.

Remind us all, our union bound
By ties we cannot sever,
Bright flag revered on every ground,
The Maple Leaf forever!
