Affordable pricing for the CSCNS EFAP program


Expression of Interest deadline extended to November 16th

These are uncertain and stressful times for the 20,000 paid staff and the 51% of the population who volunteer in the nonprofit and voluntary sector in the Province. For many of us, demands for services are increasing while funding is unpredictable. Everyone in our organizations and in their families are facing challenges. Many nonprofit and voluntary organizations have not been able to provide an employee and family assistance program (EFAP).

The Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia (CSCNS) is delighted to be working with Aspiria and New Ground Financial Inc. to address this gap. Please see the clickable link below for a detailed description of this program (in pdf form). Any nonprofit, voluntary organization, or nonprofit social enterprise in the province can offer this program to their staff and volunteers at extremely competitive pricing. Please take advantage of free membership in the CSCNS and sign up to express your interest in this program. The higher our participation numbers in the program the more affordable the pricing for everyone. Due to growing interest in the program, we have extended the Expression of Interest deadline to November 16, 2020. Please note the rates below are quoted on a per person basis include eligible children (aged of 21 or 25 if they are still in school) and common-in-law and same sex partners are included.

Completing the Expression of Interest form lets us know you are interested and we’ll be back in touch to confirm your participation via a registration form and billing agreement in later November with a targeted launch date of January 1, 2021.
