Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I'd also like to add that in my age group 85% of them have left our hometown for Alberta and fly home only on time off or live there perminitly

Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

Why just Halifax ?
I am a young mother of three and in the city is the last place I'd want to raise my kids- having a large private yard, having animals, growing a garden are things we as a family refuse to trade in.
I'm from Shelburne county and we have nothing here- living from pay to pay is an understatement.
We have went to Alberta twice and returned home for family but if our economy here continues like this we will have no choice but to leave close relatives that have no choice but to stay here.
For family's with children three major things that would keep us here would be
1) Less expensive more flexible child care- I mean if you have two kids in daycare u mid as well stay home because u make 10$ and 8hr shift not to mention daycare hours are mon-fri 730-5 it's hard to get a job here let alone walk into a mon-fri day job.

2) Benifits, the few jobs here that offer them don't pay high enough wages to pay the bills let alone be able to pay the 20% not covered. Not that it matters because majority of moms either can't get a job or it's pointless to.

3) education choices - we have a college. You can be a cca ( which is now flooded with to many workers ) office or business administration
( which I took ) but there are no jobs for it.

Any which way I look at it I love my hometown, I love being close enough to have family dinner every Sunday, swim in the lake in the summer and have a yard ( that's private ) that's big enough for my kids and dog to enjoy
But no matter how much I don't want to leave and no matter how much I don't want to live the Alberta life..... I may have to adapt because stable income, benifits, and a healthy life eventually will take presidence over being able to enjoy my family.
