Nova Scotia Domestic Violence Action Plan Update 2012
Domestic Violence Action Plan
On Nov. 20, 2012, Justice Minister Ross Landry announced the Transgendered Persons Protection Act. This Act makes it clear that Nova Scotians cannot be denied a job, a place to live or service at a business because they are transgender. Nova Scotia is the fourth jurisdiction in Canada to include a specific reference to gender identity in its human rights legislation.
The Correctional Services division of the Department of Justice is
responsible for the administration and operation of community and
custody-based programs and services for adult offenders and young persons.
Within the Correctional Services core business area there are two programs:
community corrections & correctional facilities. Each of these program
areas is broken down into closely related activities that have a specific
impact on the program's target group.
