Update from Mayor Watson - April 25, 2017

Please see below update from Mayor Watson:

“Unfortunately, this is one of those occasional Tuesdays where 5 out of 7 Councillors are out of town on business. Anyone who has attended a meeting can attest to the ineffectual, non-productive atmosphere that situation creates.

This is also a genuine risk due to such difficult communication and a high likelihood that what comes out if a meeting like this is likely to set us back or slow us down trying to sort it all out afterwards.

Mental Health Awareness Week

The first week in May is Mental Health Awareness Week - it is an annual national event that takes place across Canada. Creating healthy and supportive communities is imperative for the wellbeing of all individuals. Mental health week helps to create spaces and provide information to reduce stigma for those who experience these challenges. Lifting people spirits helps to create good energy and - music can be instrumental in doing this.

Reel Youth Project Films

In 2016, Norman Wells was lucky to have the Reel Youth project visit our Town for two weeks. Reel Youth facilitated a documentary project with the youth and elders of our Community as well as helped create a series of short files with the participants. 

All of these films are available for viewing on the Reel Youth website at:

The Town of Norman Wells thanks Reel Youth for their time and effort in working with all of our participants and congratulates everyone who was involved in creating these spectacular films!

Mayor's Blog February 23, 2017

As the days get longer and the thought of spring is coming into the minds of many, I am reminded of the quote ‘my friends, love is better than anger, hope is better than fear, optimism is better than despair, so let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic and we’ll change the world.’ – Jack Layton
