Lessons Learned, “Work from Nova Scotia” Remote Working Campaign

Learning from the remote working campaign of Nova Scotia, Canada, which also known as the New Zealand of North America.

Good Stories to Tell : ‘Work from Nova Scotia’ campaign, Canada

The campaign, Work from Nova Scotia, focuses on attracting Canadian remote workers to Nova Scotia to relocate for a longer-term stay or a permanent move.

Work from Nova Scotia’s campaign is only focused on Canadians since visas and other documentation aren’t required to relocate.

The campaign is focusing heavily on larger cities such as Toronto, Ottawa and Calgary because it’s likely those cities have a larger remote worker population.

Beside of the reasons like population growth were motivators for the campaign’s creation, the COVID-19 pandemic also played a part.

The creative approach of the campaign is about the greatest benefit of working from Nova Scotia: it’s that you get to live here.

Nova Scotia’s general safety regarding COVID-19 has been a key selling point for the campaign. Nova Scotia has been lauded as one of the most successful areas in North America in its fight against COVID-19.

The campaign also promotes the other side of Nova Scotia’s natural beauty. For example, people in Nova Scotia can step outdoors and see the ocean rather than in a large city like Toronto where someone may be surrounded by buildings.
