The Eastern District Planning Commission provides planning and development services for the Counties of Antigonish, Inverness, Richmond, Victoria and the Town of Port Hawkesbury through the efforts of a small team of planners, inspectors, technical and support staff. We are presently accepting applications for the position of:

Municipal Planner

As a member of our team, the successful candidate will be someone who is able to identify and take on responsibilities related to the provision of long and short-term policy and regulatory advice to our Councils.

A working knowledge of the Nova Scotia land planning process (including the administration of a subdivision by-law), the Municipal Government Act, and software associated with a planning office is therefore essential for this position.
