Dear friends
A history book has been commissioned by the Friends of East Point Lighthouse , for the area of Eastern Kings. Similar to the "Honouring Our Ancestors" book written for the St. Margaret's area, this book will cover the history of East Point, the lighthouse (celebrating its 150th anniversary) and the surrounding area. I have been selected to undertake this task and would now like to invite any and all contributions from those with information to share. All contributions will be cited and sourced and all contributors credited.
This is our chance to record all that we know about our own history. I will include any and all historical works previously done as long as that is the wish of those who are in possession of that data. Please consider taking part in this project. Member may contribute through this site and/or in person. I can be reached at 902-215-0932, or through my Facebook page..Thanks Kelly




OUTDOOR LIGHTING CAN PROVIDE BOTH SAFETY AND SECURITY - The Fall season is upon us which means it is dark much earlier in the evening.  By leaving your outdoor lights on you are providing some much needed safety and security for your neighbourhood, especially for people that like to walk in the evening. 

Often safety and security can be combined.  For example, motion-detecting security lighting mounted near the driveway provides illumination when you get out of your car at night; the same function deters intruders and unwanted critters.  Motion-detecting switches can also be applied to landscape lighting to illumine shadowy areas should anyone walk nearby.

Even the moonlight effect has a security function: Soft, overall landscape lighting eliminates dark areas that might hide an intruder, exposing any movement on your property.  Overly bright lights actually have a negative effect, creating undesirable pockets of deep shadow.


Community Sign @ the Beach Entrance to Souris

This sign is for non-profit organizations to inform the  COMMUNITY  of events.  BUT  should an event be Town sponsored, it takes priority over everything. There is a time limit on all announcements and this can be changed without notice.  NO GUARENTEE that your event will not be changed or omitted once booked. We try very hard not to do this!!



To all Dog & Cat owners

~~ Please be reminded that you are responsible for

~~ keeping your animals on your own property

~~ for NOT allowing them to disturb your neighbors
(especially between the hours of 10pm – 7am)

for keeping them on a leash while off your property

~~ for cleaning up after your animal if they defecate on any public or private property other than your own. 

For a complete copy of our Animal Control Bylaw,
please stop by Town Hall or check out – Bylaws. 

Fines for non-compliance
may range from $100 to $1,500 plus impound fees if necessary. 

All dogs within the Town of Souris are required to wear a valid tag/license (Renewable each June ).


A friendly reminder to come to the Town Hall to get your 2016 dog tag. Souris Dojo youth did an excellent job and have handed in the books and tags..we see from past years there are a few owners that have yet to get their drop on down between 8:30-4:30 Monday - Friday and ensure your pet gets home safely if lost.

Sea Glass Safety

For the safety of our families, pets, tourists, and community in general we ask that folks do not place broken pieces of glass/ceramic on the beach waiting for the tides to roll it in the sand: thus making sea glass. There have been some very dangerous broken glass items left on the beach which were brought to our attention

We are very proud of our beaches and we do not want to get the reputation of having unsafe beaches,


Town of Souris Info

Back in 2013 through the Bienvenue chez-nous Project we were able to buy the blue and white OPEN/OUVERT flags to give out to local businesses. The flags were a great success and have been flying proudly since then, but two years can make the flags pretty ratty looking and the Town has been getting some requests for new flags. Since 2013 we have given away all of the flags that we had purchased.  The purchase of the flags was part of the Bienvenue chez-nous Project.

**Since the Town has been receiving inquiries regarding the flags, they have contacted the company where we originally purchased the flags and they are able to match the price from 2013. The Town of Souris is willing to order the flags for local businesses to purchase at a cost of $31.00 each, tax included.  If you are interested in purchasing an OPEN/OUVERT flag, you can place your order with Joeanne at the Town Hall 902-687-2157 ext. 0. The Town would like to have at least 15 orders before placing the order
