Message from the Mayor,

It is sad to see that the Town has been hit with a devastating fire that destroyed a historic landmark on the Pictou Waterfront that housed important services to our residents.

We are grateful for the amazing response by the Town of Pictou Volunteer Fire Department and their Mutual Aid partners throughout the county. Their extensive training and professionalism has served us well in preventing more significant, peripheral damage and personal loss. Many thanks, as well, to the numerous other first responders for your part in ensuring the safety of those affected.


Jim Ryan, Mayor
Town of Pictou
