Government report reaffirms support for Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children Restorative Inquiry
Government tabled its first report on October 20, 2017 outlining its work supporting the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children (NSHCC) Restorative Inquiry. The report reaffirms the Government of Nova Scotia’s support for, and engagement in, the Inquiry.
The report looks specifically at Government’s role and participation to date, not the full body of work that’s being carried out by the Council of Parties. The Council of Parties oversees and manages all aspects of the Inquiry, including the timing of its work, using a restorative approach.

Come visit the birthplace of Canda's Black community. Our presence in this province traces back to the 1600s, and we were recorded as being present in the provincial captial during its founding in 1749. Today, some 300 years later, there are festivals and gatherings throughout the year that acknowledge and celebrate the vibrant, rich African Nova Scotian culture.
We will always be here, remembering and honouring the past, living in the present, and looking towards the future.
