Advisory Council members are women from across Nova Scotia who have demonstrated interest and involvement in women's issues in their communities.

The Advisory Council works to make sure that issues affecting the lives of Nova Scotia women become part of the government's plan. Our concerns touch all areas of women's lives, including:

  • paid and unpaid work
  • family life
  • health
  • education
  • legal rights
  • experiences of discrimination and violence
