Twillingate is a family-friendly place to live and work, with modern amenities and a traditional way of life.

A Deep History,
A Bright Future

Twillingate is a beautiful place to live, work, and raise a family. With modern amenities and a slower pace of life, we’re a tight-knit community committed to the success of our town. The Town of Twillingate administers municipal services for the residents, from roads and recreation, to water and emergency services. And while these necessities are the foundation, the town continues to strategically build the local economy through diversification, tourism initiatives, and thoughtful planning.


The Town of Twillingate offers summer and winter recreation activities for all ages at its many facilities throughout the town, including the George Hawkins Arena. 

Garbage Collection

The Town’s curbside garbage and recycling collection is contracted to Central Newfoundland Waste Management (CNWM).
