Currently, there are various event calendars within the community (some examples are shown in the next slide). The proposed website would combine these calendars so that all this information would be available in one location.
Current and thorough listings of available housing and real estate (including rental housing).
Create a Pictou County RSS feed, that would contain press releases of all groups that have submitted and not only those that are available through local media.
Provide information of the demographics of Pictou County including the various industries, employers and development opportunities.
Provide contact information and links to various government agencies and other social and settlement services.
As part of the Welcoming Communities Initiative, PRDC and our partners will be holding the second annual Fusion Festival.
