Status of Women Office

The Status of Women office works collaboratively with government departments, agencies, academia, community groups, and women-serving organizations. It is responsible for operational and administrative support to transition houses, women’s centers, and Alice House. 

The Status of Women office leads Standing Together, Nova Scotia’s coordinated approach to prevent domestic violence.

Our current priorities are:

  • ensuring that women and their children are safe from gender-based violence
  • strengthening women’s economic security
  • encouraging women’s participation in leadership

Our Vision: Gender Equality
