Dr. Strang has confirmed that those moving to Nova Scotia from outside of Atlantic Canada in the next four weeks while these restrictions are in place can only enter the province if they have an Agreement of Purchase and Sale that has been accepted on or before April 21st with a closing date on or before May 20th.
Buyers must have their Agreement of Purchase and Sale to show border officials to enter Nova Scotia and are still required to immediately complete the mandatory 14 day isolation.
Potential buyers, including RCMP and military personnel, coming to Nova Scotia from outside of Atlantic Canada just to house hunt will not be permitted into the province as this is not considered essential travel.
Licensees are to educate themselves and their consumers about the current COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions so they can make informed decisions. Licensees are to follow the directives of the provincial and federal government.
