Chief Executive Office

Grand View Manor (GVM) is a non-profit long-term care facility with 5 nursing units and 142 residents, located in beautiful Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. It officially opened its doors on October 31, 1970, and since then, it has been providing a home for seniors where comfort and happiness come first.  Over 200 kind and skilled professionals are employed by GVM to provide loving care within a close-knit community. For over 50 years, staff, and key members of the GVM community have consistently shown that GVM is a place where love is ageless and where they embrace the belief that it takes a community to truly care for seniors.

Now, with the construction of a brand-new replacement facility underway, it is exciting and pivotal for Grand View Manor as they seek their next Chief Executive Officer.
