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 Government of Nova Scotia sought input about protecting the rights of people who rely on guide and service dogs in their daily living. Consultation began in June 2015 with a deadline of July 31, 2015 for submitting comments.
The feedback received through this process is guiding government's efforts to protect the rights of service dog users.
