Have it all in the Valley – Physician recruitment


Welcome to the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. To the outside world, we’re famous for a bunch of amazing reasons – like being the home of the world’s highest tides, and for our some of the best wines this side of the Atlantic ocean. But for those of us who call the Annapolis Valley home, it’s the simpler things that make this the best place to live. Like the way we say “Hello!” to each other as we pass on the walking trails, or how after a hard day at work, we relax on the porch to the sounds of birdsong, not honking horns. 

Our region offers physicians the opportunity to have satisfying careers filled with variety, challenge, growth, and a quality of life second to none. Here in the Valley, we have it all. And you can too! We hope you’ll join us soon.

A place for everyone.

Choosing a place in the Annapolis Valley to lay down roots can be a challenge when there are so many great options available to you! From thriving towns to quaint villages, and rural landscapes to waterfront communities, the Valley has a place for everyone.

The Valley Lifestyle. 

  The Great Outdoors.

Let’s talk seasons! The Annapolis Valley is the place to be to experience the best of every season in Nova Scotia.

Our spring time is fragrant and fresh as apple blossoms bloom and the scent of spring flowers fill the air. For those who love the heat, our summer’s are the warmest in the province. Our falls are rich in golds, reds, and oranges as the leafs prepare for winter. And speaking of winter, ours make for a snow-globe like wintery wonderland. We even have one of Nova Scotia’s two ski hills! 

No matter the season, we have thousands of kilometres of trails, dozens of beaches, lakes, and rivers, and plenty of parks and wilderness areas to keep you adventuring and enjoying all that nature has to offer.

Family Life.

The Annapolis Valley has a lot to offer growing families. Houses with back yards big enough for running around in, public and private schools that support your children’s unique needs and abilities, and the ability to have access to nutritious, locally grown food just a short walk or drive away, to name a few. It’s no wonder the Annapolis Valley rates higher than almost every other region in Nova Scotia for quality of life. In fact, the 2020 Nova Scotia Quality of Life survey found Annapolis Valley residents have a higher measure of well-being than the province overall.

The Annapolis Valley is located in Mi’kma’ki, the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. For over 13,000 years, the Mikmaq have called this beautiful land home, enriching Nova Scotia with legends, art, music, spirituality, history, and language. Our many museums and historical sites celebrate the rich cultural history of local Mi’kmaq people, African Americans freed after the war of 1812, Acadian farmers, New England Planters, Loyalists and European immigrants after WWII.

The Valley is also a thriving hub of art and creation. We have numerous galleries, theatres, maker spaces, artisan studious, and even our own orchestra based out of Acadia University. Who says the city has the market cornered on culture? There’s culture wherever there’s community – and we’ve got tons of both!

We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) People first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
