A Young Family Returns to Nova Scotia from Alberta

Jamie McLennan moved to Alberta with his wife for a better life.

Like so many from Canada’s East Coast, the lure of the oil patch and the chance to get a steady, good paying job was an opportunity Jamie couldn’t pass up, especially when the prospects back home were few.

So, they took the leap and settled in Slave Lake in Northern Alberta. Jamie got a great job with CNRL and life was good.

But the lure of home was too strong. And the couple wanted their six-year-old daughter to grow up around family. So, after 12 years, they headed back to Nova Scotia, where Jamie’s wife got a job as a school teacher.

He is working in forestry but took some time off work to find out more about Pieridae’s Goldboro LNG Project at a recent open house. It’s a project he would like to be a part of and feels the initiative would be a boon to his home community.
