Deferral Notice for Residents and Businesses

The Town of Antigonish completely understands that we are all dealing with difficult times that puts varying levels of financial stress on individuals, families and businesses. The Town is committed to being flexible with options for bill payments during this time.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Antigonish has worked with the UARB to provide the following updates regarding outstanding tax balances, as well as service payments and accounts for the Electric Utility and Water Utility: 

  • Waiving interest on any outstanding tax balances until June 30, 2020
  • Waiver of interest or penalties on any past due Water and Electric accounts until June 30, 2020
  • Suspension of any disconnection services for non-payment for Water and Electric customers until June 30, 2020

With Town Hall closed to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, there are a couple of options for those who are looking to pay their service bills. Water and electrical bills can be paid through online banking or credit card. For more information on both of those options, visit: The Town also has a secure drop-box located at the front door of Town Hall where payments in the form of cheque or money order will be accepted.

For any questions or concerns regarding bill payments please phone 902-863-2351 and press 0 to speak with a staff person.
