I welcome you to Truro, Nova Scotia and our new updated and user friendly website.bill mills

The Town of Truro was incorporated in 1875 and is the largest town in Nova Scotia, serving the core of Colchester County for over 140 years. Truro has close ties to the railway, along with its location at the crossroads of vehicle traffic in the Province of Nova Scotia. As you know, change is always a part of life and the Town has adapted, and thrived and "embraced" change. Our rebranding reflects the changes present and those yet to come.

Truro’s past rich heritage in business, education, music, and sports, as well as political and architecture and innovation has evolved even more because of regional co-operation, business confidence and citizens seeing the results of good sustainable planning. Our new brand "Make the Connection" to business and lifestyle (see video on YouTube by the same name) will show the new spirit of Truro Nova Scotia! Along with our new hospital, three new schools, new Civic Centre, renovated Stadium, and Marigold Centre for performing Arts, and modern outdoor pool in our famous 1,000 acre Victoria Park. Get ready to meet our new $7.5 million Library in the former Normal College accompanied by a $1.7 million upgrade to the Civic Square, you'll see we are embracing the future. Residential development downtown will have more people living in the core of Truro. There are many more new improvements to come, particularly vibrant new businesses downtown!

I would be remiss if I did not mention our good neighbours at Dalhousie University Agriculture Campus and the Perennia Centre in Bible Hill for leadership opportunities combined with the Nova Scotia Community in Truro for exciting educational and research opportunities! In addition to a great working relationship with Colchester and Millbrook First Nation, you will be amazed at what we have in the Truro area!

I invite you to come and "Make the Connection". No other Nova Scotia Region outside Halifax has so much to offer for quality of life and business opportunities.

Explore our website and you will see...better yet, I invite "YOU" to come see us in person!

I look forward to your visit!

W.R. (Bill) Mills
Mayor of Truro
Nova Scotia
