Municipality of County of Antigonish

Antigonish County has something to offer everyone – residents, visitors and business owners alike – from its spectacular scenery to its strategic location.

There’s a special beauty along the Sunrise Trail. Gently rolling farmlands create a quilt of emerald green fields that meets the sparkling blue waters of the Northumberland Strait. Country roads wind past over thirty fine-sand beaches with their bright red bluffs and tidal saltmarshes that are vibrant with life. Timeless towns and villages, where generations have harvested the bounty of land and sea, now wait to be explored. Lobster boats can be seen leaving early in the morning and returning in mid-afternoon loaded with their delicious cargo. From the sea to you-it doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Here, you will find a competitive business environment, state-of-the-art educational facilities, regional health-care facilities, a vibrant arts and cultural community and a wide range of sport and recreational opportunities.
