Your Municipal Services

As your local government, the Municipality of the District of Guysborough strives to be responsive, progressive and approachable in providing excellent service to residents and businesses.


Municipal Enterprises Reduce Tax Burden

We’re committed to responsible stewardship of every tax dollar. We also work to reduce demand on your tax dollars by diversifying revenue streams through sustainable business operations. An example of this is our Sable Wind project in Hazel Hill, as well as our Comfit Program with turbines located in Goldboro and Melford. As a result, District of Guysborough residents enjoy the lowest residential taxes in the province along with first-rate municipal services, including exceptional recreation opportunities, environmentally responsible waste management, and a comprehensive Land Use Plan to guide development, just to name a few.

Services and programs of the municipality are governed by Council and administered by staff, led by the Chief Administrative Officer. Services are offered through the departments of Public Works, Planning, Finance and Taxation, Recreation, Waste Management, IT and Building and Fire Services.
