Welcome to Your New Neighbourhood!
Your family, like many of today’s families, needs plenty of space to grow, the opportunity to connect with your natural surroundings, and the ability to become part of a vital and growing community. You’re also most likely looking for a quality built new home, with energy efficiency, premium finishes, and today’s conveniences at the top of your list. If this sounds like your list, then you should inquire about life in your new home, built just for you, on your new lot at Mount Cameron.
Mount Cameron is a planned community like no other in the Antigonish area. This is your opportunity to live in the beautiful Mount Cameron area of Antigonish Landing. Even though your new community overlooks the protected wetlands and walking trails, you’ll be just minutes away from everything that you love about Antigonish. Mount Cameron provides all of this and more for families, retirees, and active seniors.
Antigonish is the Highland Heart of Nova Scotia, knitting its Scottish roots tightly into the community. The Antigonish Highland Games are the pinnacle of the calendar year as visitors, dancers, pipe bands and Scottish heavy-event competitors converge on the town for a week each July.

Experience life before the 1900s in this village-sized interactive museum.
