The Nova Scotia X Factor

What's inside: In Nova Scotia, people are at the heart of our success. Call it our secret sauce, our X Factor, our character. We welcome new ideas, value partnerships, and help one another to succeed. But don’t take our word for it. Hear it direct from top CEOs like Judy Steele (Emera Energy), Julia Rivard Dexter (Squiggle Park & Norex), Alex MacDonald (Admiral Insurance), and Pete Selleck (Michelin). Watch the story of how Gwen Heliou, Studio Manager, Ubisoft (Halifax), settled in Nova Scotia by way of France, Barcelona and Montreal. Find out why John Munro, EY Canada IT Advisory Partner, believes Nova Scotia is the perfect location for the new EY Centre of Excellence. The Nova Scotia X Factor makes all the difference.
