Supporting our community

I love the Dartmouth community and support small businesses.

Orlando Media invests in supporting local businesses and projects within the community of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Understanding a woefully under supported and under appreciated community, 'Hello Dartmouth' was born.

What is Hello Dartmouth?

In 2011, it all started as a simple Twitter feed touting all that was positive. Originally named, 'DSide' the forum quickly grew its readership. Along with sharing events, articles were produced and were initially published with the news site Haligonia. In 2013, interest was at an all-time high and a new name and brand was created. A new team was formed along with entrepreneur Stacey Cayea and community advocate Kate Watson.

The city of Dartmouth has a vibrant, creative and entrepreneurial spirit that grows stronger every day. Hello Dartmouth online community features local events, stories, and to support the local businesses community.


Our heart is in Dartmouth, and while it is our focus, all nearby communities need a voice as well. We're here for them too!
