The Advisory Council was established in 1977 under the
Advisory Council on the Status of Women Act and the
Advisory Council on the Status of Women Regulations.
It was created to educate the public and advise the
provincial government on issues of interest and concern
to women. 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.
Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day 2015 is:
Strong Women. Strong World.
Improving Economic Opportunities for All
This theme points to the vital contribution that women make every day to both the domestic and the global economy. It also highlights the importance of ensuring that every woman has the opportunity to help create prosperity, whether as an employee, a professional, a business leader or an entrepreneur.
