Overview



Sport Nova Scotia was incorporated in 1971. We are the voice for amateur sport in Nova Scotia that promotes the benefits of health, personal development and achievement of all participants.

Sport Nova Scotia is a non profit, non government federated organization.  Our membership is made up of over 50 sport governing bodies, (“Provincial Sport Organizations” or “PSOs”), as well as multisport organizations and other groups and individuals that share a mutual interest.  Collectively we are a voice for more than 160,000 member Nova Scotians.

We operate in 5 main areas: Sport Development, Marketing and Events, Coaching, Public Relations and Communications and Finance and Administration.  In each of these areas, programs and services are available to our membership, including consultation services.
