List of municipalities - Nova Scotia

Use the sortable table below to confirm whether a municipality is registered or revoked.

Registered municipalities are qualified donees; therefore, they can issue official donation receipts and are eligible to receive gifts from registered charities.

Revoked municipalities are no longer qualified donees; therefore, they cannot issue official donation receipts and are not eligible to receive gifts from registered charities.

Terminated municipalities are no longer qualified donees. They have either been dissolved or have amalgamated with or been annexed to another municipality; therefore, they cannot issue official donation receipts and are not eligible to receive gifts from registered charities.
 

Note

Each provincial/territorial government has its own criteria for determining what qualifies as a municipality. This list of municipalities was provided by the government of Nova Scotia. If you believe there is an error, or would like more information, contact the government of Nova Scotia .
