Communities, Sport and Recreation

As of April 1, 2016, Nova Scotia’s Active Living Branch moved from the Department of Health and Wellness to the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage (CCH).

With this move comes the creation of a brand new division called Communities, Sport and Recreation, which will bring together staff from Active Living and Communities Nova Scotia. Designed to build organizational capacity and improve quality of life for Nova Scotians, Communities, Sport and Recreation will help community organizations gain access to programs that support cultural inclusion, promote healthy living and cultural identity, build community capacity, and encourage participation in sport and recreation.
