Selected Acts – NS Legislature

The Province of Nova Scotia confirms the establishment, responsibilities and powers of its municipalities and towns through the Municipal Government Act (MGA), enacted in 1998 and amended many times since then.

Beyond the MGA, there are many pieces of provincial legislation that direct and influence how the Town of Yarmouth operates and delivers services to our residents. Below are just a few examples of legislation that affect the Town of Yarmouth. The list is not exhaustive and official versions of the legislation should be sought through the Province of Nova Scotia.
