Welcome to the Municipality of Pictou County

The Municipality of Pictou County has a population of about 20,000 and is the largest of the six municipal governments located in Pictou County. It is considered a rural government, unlike the other five urban units.  

HOLIDAY NOTICE:  Our MOPC Administration Building will close for the holidays from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2.   We will reopen on Jan. 3 at 8:30 a.m.   If you have a public works emergency during our closure, please call 902-301-1825.

We ask MOPC residents for your patience as this is a large project. We will get to all areas of rural Pictou County, but it will take time. We are approaching the winter months and crews are working six days a week, long days, to get as much done as possible.  You can continue to watch this website and our social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.
