Editor's Choice: CERB Repayments Just Got Scrapped For So Many Canadians & Here's What You Need To Know

Back in December, the Nova Scotia government launched a campaign aiming to bring thousands more Canadians to the sea-bound coast.

In particular, they’re encouraging Canucks who are working from home to consider moving to the oceanside by using the tagline: "If you can do your job from anywhere, do it from here."

In addition to glorious coastlines, bustling urban cities and “endless beaches,” they’re also promising affordable housing.

In fact, their website says that the average price of a Nova Scotia home was $304,590 in 2020, compared to the national average of $607,250.

Here's a look at what's on offer in Canada's Ocean Playground right now:
