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

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
