ABOUT HANTSPORT

We are always ‘Hantsport Proud’.

Hantsport is located in Mi’kmaqi, the traditional unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. Hantsport is a family friendly community on the banks of the Avon river. This idyllic location has not always had the easiest of times. After 2 of its 3 major industries closed down it left the town with no choice but to merge with its municipal neighbour. The town was suddenly part of a wider community and faced losing its identity. Groups of local citizens (some long moved on to other places and other countries), since then have got together to ensure the community they grew up again started to prosper and thrive. Hantsport is now home to a music festival in July. The Community centre has become a centre for recreational activities, a winter carnival has been revived and, new businesses are moving in.
