The Town and County of Antigonish are currently in the process of exploring consolidation.

Over the past few years, the Town and County have partnered on many projects that have resulted in significant successes for our whole community. The relationships and collaboration between the two municipalities has increased to the point where it is worth exploring the option of consolidation.

This is your one-stop shop for up-to-date information on the exploration of consolidation process. Throughout the Spring of 2022, over 20 community engagement sessions were held, both in person and online. Feedback was collected and a “What We Heard Report” is currently being assembled by the consulting team. This report will be available to Councils and the public later in the summer.
