Mayor

It is my distinct privilege and pleasure to welcome you to the Town of Wolfville website. I hope you find answers here to questions you may have about this town, the community, the opportunities to be active and have fun, the benefits of living in the Annapolis Valley, and how your Council is working to ensure that this town continues to be the town we all cherish.One of our, often overlooked, community assets in Wolfville is our distinctiveness. We are unique!

The government of the Town and the residents of the Town know and respect this and strive to protect and enhance our unique character and identity. Much of our strength comes from our physical beauty, opportunities for socializing and our inclusiveness.Our sense of place, belonging and inclusion makes this place we call home worth caring about and worth protecting.

The community of Wolfville has a conscience built from and around sustainability, an active cultural and physical lifestyle and life-long learning.

I invite you to share this special place with us and please remember, you are always welcome at the Town Hall, 359 Main Street, to offer your opinion on how we are doing. We can only improve when we know what we are doing well and what needs attention and improvement.

Sincerely,

Jeff Cantwell

Mayor
