Working with government to serve African Nova Scotians

Working with government to serve African Nova ScotiansAs a founding culture, African Nova Scotian history is deep and storied. Today, there are 50 African Nova Scotian communities throughout the province of Nova Scotia. Almost 21,000 African Nova Scotians call this province home, contributing to the rich diversity that defines Nova Scotia.

African Nova Scotian Affairs (ANSA) works with government and the African Nova Scotian community to enhance cultural understanding and assist in the delivery of services that meet the unique needs of African Nova Scotians. It is the connecting point to the community, promoting African Nova Scotian priorities and bringing people together to share in cultural experiences.

African Nova Scotian Affairs contributes to government decision-making and facilitates positive change on behalf of African Nova Scotians. It also works in partnership with departments, agencies and other organizations to develop solutions that support the ongoing well-being of African Nova Scotians.

ANSA is an advocate for African Nova Scotians, encouraging dialogue and involvement between government and the community. Through the efforts of ANSA, voices have a means to be heard and the aspirations of African Nova Scotians can be achieved.
