A richly rewarding place to live!

In 2002, Harrowsmith Country Life Magazine voted Wolfville "one of the best towns in which to live in Canada". Anyone who has or does live here knows exactly why, and would agree whole-heartedly. With a thriving cultural centre, warm sense of caring community, progressive sense of sustainability, and strong municipal backbone, Wolfville just might be the perfect place to live. And we’re always looking for ways to make the Town an even more rewarding place to live for students, residents, and their families.

Wolfville’s populations is growing! The 2011 Census reported that Wolfville’s population was 4,269, an increase of 13.2% since 2006. With the presence of Acadia University, Wolfville’s population doubles to over 7,000. With the student population the energy rise is palpable.

Wolfville also has Nova Scotia's most diverse population, with more than 12% of the Town's residents born outside of Canada. This compares to about 5% for the province as a whole. No wonder our cultural centre is so strong.
