Westville is a safe and secure community where you can live life to the fullest, surrounded by the scenic landscapes of nature. From country style homes and rural estate subdivisions to a complete selection of brand new subdivisions, there is a home to fit every lifestyle and taste.


As one of the largest geographical areas in the Province of Nova Scotia, Westville is committed to welcoming new residents to our community from cross the Globe.  As a testament to this our community and neighboring regions have recently formed a multicultural association.
