We can't find that page!

You asked for, but despite our computers looking very hard, we could not find it. What happened ?

  • the link you clicked to arrive here has a typo in it
  • or somehow we removed that page, or gave it another name
  • or, quite unlikely for sure, maybe you typed it yourself and there was a little mistake ?

It's not the end of everything though : you may be interested in the following pages on our site:

  1. Assembly occupancies (churches, community halls, licensed establishments, restaurants, theatres, bowling alleys, arenas, rinks, gymnasiums, museums, indoor pools)

  3. Business and personal service occupancies (offices, banks and service shops)
  4. Mercantile occupancies (stores, markets and retail outlets)
  5. Industrial occupancies ( workshops, factories, warehouses, repair garages, gas stations)

The inspector is responsible to ensure compliance with the National Fire Code of Canada and is available to provide information on fire safety and fire emergency planning.

Fire Safety Planning

The National Fire Code of Canada requires that certain buildings shall develop and maintain a Fire Safety Plan. To assist owners/occupants in the development and/or maintenance of these plans, the Office of the Fire Inspector for the Town of Yarmouth has made available a Fire Safety Planning Guide. Building owners/occupants are encouraged to use this guide as a template to prepare or enhance their plans so that they meet the requirements of the Fire Code.

The following occupancies are required to have a formal fire safety plan:

  1. Assembly occupancies(any building in which persons gather including restaurants, halls, gymnasiums, libraries, churches, clubs, bowling alleys);
  2. Every building required to have a fire alarm system including sprinklered buildings;
  3. Areas used for bulk storage;
  4. Areas where flammable or combustible liquids are stored or handled;
  5. Areas where hazardous processes or operations occur.

If your building falls within one of the categories listed above, you are required to have a fire safety plan. For more information or to obtain a hard copy of our fire safety planning guide, please call or visit the Fire Inspector at: Fire Services Department, 221 Pleasant Street, Yarmouth Tel: 902-740-5706.

Financial Condition Indicator Report

The Department of Municipal Affairs, on behalf of the Nova Scotia Government and Association of Municipal Administrators of Nova Scotia (AMANS), compiles municipal indicators that focus on financial matters, administration of the municipality and characteristics of the community. Prior to 2017, this information was structured into two separate reports – the Financial Condition Indicator and the Municipal Profile reports. This report brings together both sets of statistics (financial and demographic) to give an overall snapshot for each municipality. Click the link below to review the report.

Local Legions Receive Tulip Bubls

This morning at Town Hall, members from three local Royal Canadian Legion branches were on hand to receive some Liberation75 tulip bulbs for planting. 

Last month, Yarmouth hosted "Blooms by the Sea", the 2019 Communities in Bloom National Symposium and Awards. The event was a smashing success, and a highlight moment took place when the Town was gifted with 5,000 tulip bulbs as part of the "Liberation75 Commemorative Planting Campaign". This important campaign celebrates the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands. The goal is to cover the country in 1.1 Million Liberation75 Tulips in honour of the 1.1 million Canadians who served during the Second World War.

This morning at Town Hall, members from three local Royal Canadian Legion branches were on hand to receive some of these bulbs for planting. Town Councillor and Communities in Bloom Chair Wade Cleveland presented 100 bulbs each to the Yarmouth Legion (Branch 61), the Wedgeport Legion (Branch 155), and the West Pubnico Legion (Branch 66).

In an effort to ensure the Town of Yarmouth does its part in reaching the Liberation75 goal, all 5,000 bulbs will be planted in town or given to local legions, schools, and the Veteran's Place Seniors residence at the Yarmouth Hospital.
