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 Department of Justice offers challenging positions for persons interested in working as probation officers, adult correctional workers or youth workers. For information regarding qualifications, training and recruitment contact the Nova Scotia Public Service Commission.
