Residents of Kentville and the Annapolis area will have better access to government services thanks to the new Kentville Access Nova Scotia Centre.

The centre, which officially opened today, Oct. 28, combines the Access Centre and land registration office to make the facility on 5 Shylah Dr., Kentville, the second largest Access Centre in the province.

"The province is committed to better serving the people of Kentville and the Annapolis area by offering government services under one roof," said Ramona Jennex, Minister of Education, on behalf of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister John MacDonell. "By continuing to provide quality and convenient service to our clients in all Access Nova Scotia Centres, we are making life better for families across the province."

Since late June, the centre has been offering information and services such as driver licences, motor vehicle registration, consumer protection, debtor assistance, business licences and registration, residential tenancies and land registration.
