WestHants Logo RGB



A brand represents who we are, what we stand for, and how people and stakeholders experience us. It is why people want to live here, work here, build a business, invest, do business with us, and visit. It is also our commitment to a guaranteed experience.

Over the past nine months, our Branding Leadership team consisting of community participants and staff have worked with branding & marketing consultant Prime Creative to create a community brand for West Hants Regional Municipality. Their experiences, expertise and enthusiasm paired with a review of the past few years' community engagements, data and great conversation have brought us to where we are now…our new brand.
