You’re invited to a special Hybrid event to celebrate and recognize the contributions of the Community Impact (Nonprofit) Sector in Nova Scotia

When: April 29, 2022, 1-3PM

Where: Online Event via Eventbrite

Join us in celebrating the people and the impact organizations (nonprofits) that tirelessly serve our province, strengthening our quality of life and delivering a range of vital services to meet the needs of those in Nova Scotia.

Employing over 20,000 people, this sector strengthens our quality of life and delivers on impact. It provides housing and language services to newcomers; offers breakfast programs in schools, coordinates mental health outreach and social interactions to seniors; empowers and mentors youth from 2SLGBTQIA+, African Nova Scotian, and Mi’kmaw communities; delivers sport and recreation programs; saves endangered species and wildlife; provides a safe haven for women and non-binary people experiencing gender-based violence; advocates for climate justice; creates art and music programs; and so much more.

Hundreds of thousands of Nova Scotians benefit from the Community Impact Sector every day. Those who work in the sector are passionate, strategic, diverse, innovative, and humbly committed to their work. Looking back on the past two years, in particular, the sector has persevered through it all. Some words of appreciation and time to pause and reflect on accomplishments are overdue.

It’s time to celebrate! Please join us virtually for the festivities on April 29th from 1-3PM. Hosted by Portia Clark from CBC’s Information Morning, the Community Sector Day of Recognition will present awards, words of inspiration, and live artistic performances. Please RSVP via Eventbrite here to receive the link to the live-streamed event.
