In cooperation with Indigenous Peoples’ national organizations, the Government of Canada designated June 21 National Indigenous Peoples Day, a celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ culture and heritage. This date was chosen because it corresponds to the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and because for generations, many Indigenous Peoples’ groups have celebrated their culture and heritage at this time of year.Read More

The Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia would like to recognize National Volunteer Week(April 15-21, 2018). Over 450,000 Nova Scotians volunteer every year and that keeps growing...in other terms, volunteer contributions represent over 30 million hours of volunteer efforts every year. In a monetary sense it equates to 1.8 billion dollars of services to the Provincial economy. How's that for a return on your investment? Volunteer efforts in our Province are very humbling and we, the Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia are proud to be part of the social profit you create in Nova Scotia each and every year. Thank you.Read More

As part of our partnership and collaboration with the How We Thrive conference (https://www.howwethrive.org/), the Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia is collecting video vignettes from around the province to bring into the THRIVE gathering (June 17-20, 2018). We strive to have a cross-section of Nova Scotians contributing to a conversation about a future that works for all. We recognize the reality that not everyone will be able to participate in-person. So it's kind of a given that we will be missing some voices in our conversation about a "future that works for all."Read More
