Black, African Nova Scotian


Are you, or is someone you’re worried about, African Nova Scotian? There are programs and resources available that were created specifically to address the unique concerns and needs of people in this community. 


Count Us In

Count Us In is Nova Scotia’s action plan in response to the International Decade for People of African Descent. It’s designed to help the government eliminate the many challenges facing African Nova Scotians. The program’s recommendations should help find solutions to the racism, discrimination, and injustice that may affect African Nova Scotians. The goal is to create a province where African Nova Scotians have equitable access to all opportunities.
