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.
Health and mental health services are provided by an on-site IWK Adolescent Forensic Team.
The Nova Scotia Youth Facility has partnered with the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board to operate an off-site education program in the community called Centre 24-7 and recently opened the Halifax Youth Attendance Centre.
