Community Development

The Department of Community Development aims to provide and support projects that contribute to cultural, recreational, tourism and business development; as well as provide outstanding service to visitors, businesses and residents in Wolfville.

To accomplish our objectives, the Department is organized into four areas of focus:

  • Tourism: Identifies tourism opportunities that promote and attract visitors to Wolfville and operates the Visitor Information Centre.
  • Festivals & Events: Working with a wide range of community-based cultural organizations, department staff provide director (event coordinator) and indirect (grant funding) support for festivals and events that occur in Wolfville and/or have a positive impact for the residents and businesses of Wolfville.
