Public Awareness and Support are Critical elements in Emergency Planning.
The most immediate help after a disaster is from people nearby when the event occurs. That means it is your work colleagues, neighbours, friends, family and members of the community who are the ones who will be giving or needing help.
Are you interested in helping your community and playing a critical role during major events, emergencies and disasters? Join the Town of Wolfville’s Emergency Volunteer Group and show you care for our Town and region.
The Wolfville Emergency Volunteer Group welcomes your application if you:
Note: All personal information will be retained by the EMC and not distributed to other organizations
You will be contacted if your help is needed. This will depend on: the needs of affected areas (which may take time to assess); volunteer availability, location and skills required. We encourage you, if safe, to help your family, friends, neighbours, and groups you are already connected with.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help the Town of Wolfville’s emergency response and recovery efforts
You’re invited to an amazing food event in Wolfville this Saturday, May 27.
Tracy Moore joins President’s Choice® in Wolfville on coast-to-coast exploration of Canadian cuisine Nothing brings people together like eating together. When we eat together, we share more than just a meal. We see each other as equals. Eating together can make Canada, and maybe even the world, a better place.
In celebration of our great nation’s 150th year, the President’s Choice® team has partnered with Cityline to conduct a coast-to-coast exploration of dishes that bring Canadians to the table.
From March until June, the team will be touring the country, visiting six communities:
...and encouraging Canadians to eat together and share stories about their favourite dishes.
Cityline host Tracy Moore and PC® Executive Chef Tom Filippou will be making a stop in Wolfville to tape a segment for the show during the Apple Blossom Festival.
Residents and visitors are invited to join Tracy and Chef Tom for a meet and greet, where they can share their own views on Nova Scotia’s food culture and talk to the duo about eating together as a nation.
May 16th, 2017 Public access to the Wolfville Nature Trust Lands off of Forest Hill Road has been suspended until road maintenance can be completed.
Repairs to the Old Burying Ground wall will commence on Tuesday, May 16th, 2017. The plan is to remove the wall one section at a time and store the stones on site avoiding the gravesites.
As part of the reconstruction two trees behind the western section of the wall will be removed. These trees will not survive the reconstruction and their roots are at least partially responsible for the deterioration of the wall. New trees will be planted in the area but a safe distance from the wall once work is completed.
Construction is expected to take 8 weeks and this section of the sidewalk will be closed to pedestrian traffic to allow the contractor room to work and protect the public.
The contractor is well aware of the historical significance of the site and will make every effort to respect the property and not disturb any of the gravesites.
The public can access the burying ground during construction from Clock Park.
Sealed Tenders clearly marked “WOL001-2017 King Street Reconstruction” and addressed to the Town of Wolfville, N.S., will be received at the Town Office, 359 Main Street, up to 2:00 p.m., local time, on Wednesday, May 31th, 2017.

The work also includes environmental protection and reconnection to the existing system where shown on the project drawings.
