Our Organization

Northwood: Live more

Northwood is Nova Scotia's original senior citizen advocate, dating back to 1962. Since that time, we have led the way as Nova Scotia's most dynamic continuing care organization committed to innovation and change. We are the largest not-for-profit continuing care organization in Atlantic Canada and are recognized both here at home and across Canada as an extraordinary example of the power of social justice, but we like to call it the power of love! When life changes, and society changes, Northwood leads the way, incorporating revolutionary designed, responsive care. From new ideas to new technologies, we are empowered to do this, because our focus is on people, not on profit margins.

Northwood is a full spectrum health, lifestyle and continuing care organization with a staff of more than 1,700. We are continuously recognized as a great place to work, with the distinction of being one of Nova Scotia's Top Employers as well as a Top Employer in Atlantic Canada. These special designations recognize employers who lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
