Our letter to you!

Is it possible to feel at home in a place you have never lived? Absolutely, if that place is Pictou County.  Making people feel welcome is one of the many things that we do best. Perhaps it’s our sense of place that sets our community apart. Maybe it’s the deep connection to our history while celebrating our lives and stories. Maybe it’s the energy in our creative and entrepreneurial spirit, our little quirks, or the way we take care of each other when we need it the most. These are the things that become part of the character of those who choose to live here and will be part of your experience as you settle in and truly grow to appreciate our culture. Welcome Home. We’ve been waiting for you.
