How is the job market in the Guysborough county? This is a question I often hear. People who are considering to move to Forest Hill will need some kind of income, unless they are retired. Although the job market is not great, there are still many opportunities to make an income. In this article we’ll share a list with the most sought-after experts and also talk about alternative income possibilities.
While the rate of unemployment in Canada is currently at 16%, it can increase in certain areas of Nova Scotia up to 30% during the Winter. Who needs a job in order to live in the Forest Hill Retreat should either have a very rare and sought-after profession or – even better – build his own company and create jobs for himself and a local person.
Recently I had a very interesting communication with an immigration officer from Halifax, and she informed that there will soon new job opportunities be created near Forest Hill. If you depend on a job, please let us know.
If you would like to live in Forest Hill permanently, you will need a permanent resident visa. The Canadian Embassy in your country will give you all the information in regards of which visa is right for you.
The main prerequisite to receive a permanent resident visa is an adequate financial supply for the applicants. You have to prove that you will financially be taken care of in Canada or that you can support yourself. In other words, you either need…
- a pension
- a job in a Canadian company
- a rental income
- an adequate fortune that will last until the end of your life
- build or have your own company that supports at least you and your family (preferably also some local employee)
- a sufficient income from a freelance or network marketing business
- another provable form of income or self-sufficiency

In the age of the internet there are literally millions of opportunities to make a decent income working from home and from anywhere in the word. Here are just a few examples.
- Writing your own books or writing as a ghostwriter
- build your own internet business
- create and sell online courses
- sell things through Amazon & eBay
- Fotography (where could you do this better than in Forest Hill)
- conducting Teleseminars/Webinars
- Public Speaking
- sell courses on Udemy.com
- etc., etc., etc.
On top of these possibilities we will also need some helping hands, be it for building the retreat, for the farm to provide the other residents with healthy, organic food, for our coaching/speaking business or our internet business. Therefore we will be looking for a custodian, gardener/farmer, handymen, an internet specialist, one or two body guards during seminars and talks, and some other helping hands for our seminars. Creative people with the willingness to work will always have enough money to live with. If you have a special skill or talent we could use, or if you have an idea for something we could realize in Forest Hill or in the county, we would love to hear about and to brainstorm some solutions together with you.
After three years of living in Canada as a resident uninterrupted you are eligible to apply for citizenship. During that time it’s very important that you can prove that you’re able to provide for yourself.
A single person needs in Nova Scotia between $1,500 and $2,000 per month and a family – depending on the size – will need between $2,500 and $3,000 a month for a decent lifestyle. This is what you need to cover all the main costs…you’ll have everything you need but no luxury included. Of course, if you have to pay off a mortgage that amount will have to be added. The only “luxury” you will definitely need in Forest Hill is a vehicle. Of course, not every family will need an own car. There are several future tenants who are interested in care sharing.
