SAFETY NOTICE – Demolition of Buildings and Structures Located at 7578 Highway 1, Meteghan, NS

To ensure the safety of the residents of the community, the Municipality of Clare will proceed with the removal of any aging and precarious buildings from the site of the Clare ecoparc as of Wednesday, April 10. In addition to security reasons, a refurbished property will add value to the land and to the surrounding vicinity and will help attract new business activity to the site.


On this International Day of La Francophonie, the Council of the Municipality of Clare wishes to commemorate an important anniversary for all of Canada and for the residents of Clare. The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act. This law identifies French and English as Canada’s official languages. As the only municipality in Nova Scotia that conducts business and offers services in both official languages, we recognize the importance of communicating with our Acadian and francophone residents—as well as our anglophone residents—in their first language today and for many years to come. 

The 2019 fire-risk season begins March 15, 2019. Burning permits can be acquired at no cost from the fire chief in your area.
