These are the principles behind Inspiring Communities. Created to support collaborative efforts to address complex social issues in Nova Scotia’s communities, we engage directly with local organizations and residents to understand the challenges they’re facing, and to identify innovative solutions for overcoming them. Our work is all about finding ways of coming together to remove barriers that prevent our communities from thriving.
