Province Supports First Provincial Council for Non-Profits

Non-profit and voluntary organizations are joining forces to better meet the needs of people and communities across Nova Scotia.

The province is investing $450,000 towards a new Community Sector Council to help build stronger non-profit organizations. The sector council will bring non-profits together to learn from each other and share human resource and financial expertise, training practices, and research.

Non-profit organizations provide a wide range of services to Nova Scotians, from child care to career counselling, to co-ordinating sports teams, running shelters for the homeless, to managing museums.
