If you’d like to make an impact in your community, the province is looking for applicants to about 140 agencies, boards and commissions across Nova Scotia including Accessibility Advisory Board and the Workers’ Compensation Board.

Examples of other boards include:
— university boards of governors
— library boards
— boards of colleges of healthcare professionals
— the newly created Invest Nova Scotia Advisory Board and Build Nova Scotia Advisory Board
— labour-related committees and boards.

“Just about every Nova Scotian has an interest or expertise that means they would be a valuable contributor to one of our many agencies, boards or commissions,” said Pat Dunn, Minister responsible for the Voluntary Sector. “I encourage everyone to take a look at the opportunities and consider serving our province this way.”

Twice a year the province looks for new people in many areas including health, policing, agriculture and education, culture, environment, transportation, professional regulation and more.

The deadline to apply is May 24 and you can track your application progress online.

Quick Facts:
— applications will be considered for current vacancies and those occurring before March 31, 2024
— Nova Scotians can apply and track the progress of their applications by creating a profile in the online application system
— typically, appointees are reimbursed for expenses and in some cases, paid a modest amount for their services
