Life in the Annapolis Valley
“We had the choice of Montreal, Toronto, or Atlanta, but we moved to the Annapolis Valley and never looked back. Access to an international airport, the bandwidth, and the business supports of the Annapolis Valley have allowed me to manage international clients remotely from my home office. Not to mention it was a great place to raise our children—with access to the resources, culture, and entertainment we came to expect in the big city.”
Jim Murphy, Remote Worker
“We came to the Annapolis Valley for the abundant land available to grow grapes and make great wine. What we also found was a great community, amazing local food, and the best weather in the province”
Stewart Creaser & Lorraine Vassalo, Winery Owners
“Several years ago, I relocated my marketing company to the Valley so that I could raise my children and work in an area that offers a better balance in life. My team connects with our clients worldwide using fast FibreOp. My family loves to hike in the summer and ski in the winter—both only a few minutes from home. Now I have the best of both worlds!

“We were living and working in the United States and we had the opportunity to move back to Nova Scotia. Our plan was to move to the greater Halifax area, but once we found the Annapolis Valley, we decided that it was the place we wanted to raise a family. It has everything that we, as an active family, needed and wanted—some of the best schools in the country, fantastic restaurants just minutes away, a booming wine industry, and beaches are never more than a short drive away. This was twenty years ago and we couldn’t have made a better choice.”
