150(+1) Great Things About Pictou County


On June 18th 2018, the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce presented the Newcomer Welcome Centre of the Pictou Antigonish Regional Library with a unique booklet describing 151 activities, facilities and events that make Pictou County a unique and wonderful place to live and work.

In addition to the Newcomer Centre, Chamber President Blair Van Veld says the booklet will also be a resource for local businesses and organizations in the recruitment and retention of new employees and their families, and as an enhancement to our tourism offerings. “We have to start being more positive about Pictou County. This booklet is impressive and will help newcomers become oriented in our communities. In fact, I believe it helps all of us appreciate just how much we have going for us. Very few rural areas of Nova Scotia can match this list.”

Eric Stackhouse, Chief Librarian at the Regional Library said, “This is a terrific introduction for those new to our community and will be a valuable addition to the Newcomer Welcome kits. The more people know about the community, the more likely they are to stay, whether they are from across the province or across the globe.”

The booklet is a living document which will be on-line through the Chamber website (www.pictouchamber.com) and the library (www.parl.ns.ca/newcomers). It will be updated and expanded over time, and it is hoped that local residents will have a look, advise of any errors or omissions that they may find, and give ideas of more great things that can added.
