Who We Are

The Sheet Harbour & Area Chamber of Commerce and Civic Affairs is a unique organization and supports more than local businesses. As part of the Halifax Regional Municipality, our area does not have local autonomous governance and revenue. Operated exclusively by member volunteers the Civic Affairs aspect of the organization has become a voice for residents. We support local amenities, activities and events.
