Finding a job in a new region can be daunting—particularly if you’re relocating to a smaller community. But the Annapolis Valley has always punched above its weight in terms of quality employment opportunities. Here you’ll find a number of large employers in education, healthcare, manufacturing, food processing, and more. And working with your neighbours means that our business leaders are responsive to challenges and supportive of each other. A rising tide floats all boats!
Get to work by staying at home.
Maybe you’re the type that does their best work from their back deck. Or hey, maybe it’s just the nature of your job that means you report in from afar. Whatever the case, you can easily work from home here. Have you heard of the Valley Community Fibre Network? It’s a high-capacity fibre-optic backbone, connecting the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia with the provincial capital of Halifax. It spans 200 km and augments the region’s digital infrastructure. Not only that, but most of the houses in our region are more than big enough for you to dedicate a whole room to being your office. Heck, you can have two offices in one house AND enjoy a calming wooded walk on your lunch break. Why not have it all?
Let’s get started.
Numbers alone can’t paint the fully vibrant picture of our bustling retail-lined streets, the smell of fresh produce all around, and a public administration support system to keep it all moving smoothly. But some people like numbers, so here’s a few.
Some notable large employers by industry (2017) are retail trade (18%), health care and social assistance (18%), public administration (17%), manufacturing (9%), education (7%), construction (10%), and agriculture/forestry/fishing (3%). That’s a lot to sift through!

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.
