Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women

Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women

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.

Domestic Violence Prevention Grants Now Available

Domestic violence affects many Nova Scotians and can happen in any relationship. Over the next few years, the Government of Nova Scotia will work with community organizations and groups to prevent domestic violence and better support victims through the development of a provincial plan, called Standing Together.

Community groups can now apply for grants to help develop and test new ways to prevent domestic violence and support victims and their families.
