Starting this year, Strait Area Women’s Place in Port Hawkesbury will get more funding from the province to support women in the region.

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

March 8 is International Women's Day. It is a day to recognize women's achievements and acknowledge the challenges they continue to face in the quest for gender equality.

Government announced annual funding for the Nova Scotia Native Women’s Association of $205,700 today, May 15, at an event at Glooscap First Nation.
The association has 16 chapters in the province and advocates on matters of importance to Indigenous women and girls.

What’s the deal?

This Sanctuary Series amplifies emerging and fresh voices in systems change and women- identified leadership at this moment in history.

This is a time of both urgency and going slow. Our systems are broken so we need new ways to approach them..

This series is designed to be a place for grappling and also for refuge.
