Repeal of Crosbie Memorial Trust Fund Act

Legislation introduced today, March 25, will repeal the Crosbie Memorial Trust Fund Act.

The act, established in 2003, authorized a volunteer board to administer the Crosbie Memorial Trust Fund. The fund was established to support abstinence-based addictions services under the former Annapolis Valley Health Authority. It was built by payments of fines imposed on people who committed drug- or alcohol-related offences.

An amendment to the act in 2012 transferred the remaining funds to the Crosbie House Society board of directors. The funds have since been spent in full and the trust and its board are no longer active, making the legislation redundant.
