Community

around town

Cycling or walking along the beach. Enjoying a stage production or local folk art. Walking downtown and window shopping. Yarmouth is an amazing place to live – not just because of what there is to do, but the people who live here. Here's a quick guide to living, working, and experiencing Yarmouth.

Community Services

  • Animal services. How to register your dog and your responsibilities as a pet owner.
  • Business directory. Local retailers, manufacturers, distributors and professional services firms – the operations that have helped us become a regional business hub.
  • Community directory. Find your way to community groups, recreational bodies, government services and helping agencies.
  • Education. From schools to an informal family resource centre, there are lots of places to learn about the world.
  • Emergency services. Police, fire, and medical services are available whenever you need them. If someone's health, safety, or property is threatened and help is needed right away, call 911 right away.
  • Garbage, recycling, and composting. In Yarmouth, we use a 2 bag system – one for paper products, the other for plastic and metal. Along with roadside collection for solid waste, we also recommend special steps for pharmaceutical waste, hazardous waste, and electronics. Learn more on our Garbage, Recycling & Composting page.
  • Water and sewer. How to connect to the town's water utility.
  • Transportation. Access a range of transportation services, including a transit bus, shuttles, and ferry service to the United States.
