This communication was sent on behalf of Mayor Mood, Town of Yarmouth and Code of Conduct Working Group Chair

Good Day,

Following the consultations on municipal and villages codes of conduct that took place in September 2022 and February 2023 on content to include in the code, sanctions, and complaint/investigator process, the Code of Conduct Working Group (COCWG) has finalized their recommendations for final feedback.

The attached document (included a  PDF and word version ) outlines all the recommendations from the COCWG, including the rationale, and the complete code of conduct framework. Feedback is only being sought on recommendations that have been revised or added since the last consultation process.

Individual elected officials and senior administrators are requested to complete the following survey before end of day Monday September 25, 2023.

The feedback from this survey will be compiled and reviewed by the COCWG. Any amendments will be provided to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing for their consideration.

Thank you to all who have participated in the code of conduct consultations. We look forward to implementing a model that will support all elected members in Nova Scotia.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please email 

Mayor Pam Mood
