The Region of Queens is anchored by Liverpool, a picturesque, maritime town on the spectacular Atlantic Ocean.
Known for being kind, open, and generous, Liverpudlians welcome newcomers with enthusiasm. Our Community is safe, diverse, and inclusive, featuring people from all walks of life-- tradespeople, artists, entrepreneurs, young families, and retirees.
Our community values the Queens General Hospital and the professionals that work to maintain its high level of care.
New medical professionals in our community will be supported and mentored by an experienced group who work well together. This cohesive team of physicians, nurses, laboratory/x-ray technologists and other dedicated medical professionals strive to bring the best care to Queens County.
We are centrally located in the Western Zone and offer the highest level of care to all our patients.
Queens County offers its residents modern conveniences and services, a great educational system, affordable housing and modern recreational facilities.
Our community also has some of Nova Scotia’s top resorts at its doorstep like White Point and The Quarterdeck, along with top culinary destinations.
The area offers beautiful parks, extensive trails like Pine Grove, warm freshwater lakes, oceanfront and lakefront sandy beaches, and other natural recreational areas, along with easy access to nearby Kejimkujik National Park and its seaside adjunct.
Queens is also fortunate to have a thriving arts and culture scene. Many talented artists, musicians, photographers, and other creative people bring the arts to life at numerous festivals and events held every year. At the heart of the arts community is the Astor Theatre, Canada's oldest continuously operating movie theatre and home to our award-winning amateur theatre company, the Winds of Change.
All this while being just 90 minutes from Halifax and its international airport.
