What is a Civic Address?
A civic address is the number and street used to identify buildings (e.g. 60 Pleasant Street). Currently the Town of Bridgewater does not have a civic address bylaw in place but does provide Civic Address Signage Guidelines and utilizes such legislation as the Emergency "911" Act and the Municipal Government Act to assign civic numbers (see website links below).



Also, the Town works together with the Nova Scotia Geomatics Centre and Nova Scotia Emergency Management 911 office to ensure all numbers are correct and update their records when new streets get developed. The public has a primary responsibility to ensure that their civic numbers are posted and are clearly visible. 

Town Council has approved the following Civic Address Signage Guidelines for the Town of Bridgewater:


Why do you need a Civic Address? Why should it be clearly visible? To ensure that you can easily be found in an emergency situation by:

  • Fire Services
  • Ambulance Services
  • Police Services

This address is also useful for:

  • Delivery services

If you have any questions or require additional information please contact Justin Penny at 902-541-4370 or the Nova Scotia 911 Program/Civic Addressing Inquiry Line at 1-800-388-3911
