  • Things or services that you believe require changes or need to be adapted;
  • Opportunities and/or challenges you may have operating a business, event, or program as a resident, volunteer, employer or employee;
  • Areas development or infrastructure projects that are of interest;
  • Your vision for the Town in 5, 10, 15, 20+ years; and
  • Additional thoughts or opinions about future community development and best practice initiatives.

WSP Inc., has developed an Engagement Report detailing the results of the public consultations from the Municipal Planning Strategy Review. pdf Click here, to view the report (1.94 MB)

The goal of the review is to modernize existing policies that will create opportunities for growth, new investment, and community development. The review process will provide the Town with the strategic capacity to plan for the future, while also aligning the Town’s vision with the five priority action areas that were collectively outlined in the Engage Antigonish consultation sessions. The full report from Engage Antigonish is available here

The MPS review will serve as a vital component of the municipality’s transition into the new Eastern District Planning Commission’s (EDPC) service delivery model. The EDPC supports Antigonish’s development of safe and healthy communities by providing planning, subdivision and building inspection services to the community.
