Phase 5 Facility Update



The Town of Port Hawkesbury has made changes to facility operations to ensure compliance with the start of Phase 5 of Nova Scotia’s reopening plan.  Please note some important updates regarding activities at the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre. 


Beginning October 4, 2021 the Civic Centre will have new and enhanced directional signage for visitors.  All facility visitors are asked to check in at the box office for all activities during regular business hours (M-F 8:30-4:30).  Outside of these hours, visitors should go directly to their event location and should be prepared to show proof of vaccination.  The Town is most appreciative of the collaboration from our user groups.
