Rural Housing In Nova Scotia

Recognizing the growing concern across rural Nova Scotia about the housing needs and challenges in our communities, members from SSHAC and other housing groups from across the province asked, “How can we work together to have a greater impact?”

On November 18th, 2016, nearly 100 community stakeholders from across Nova Scotia gathered in Antigonish and New Ross, to start a conversation about rural housing experiences, challenges and opportunities.

Moving Forward Together offered the opportunity for community stakeholders to:

  1. Learn from each other through case studies about what’s working well and what barriers are getting in the way of action in our communities.
  2. Discuss how we can work together to learn and take action on the barriers and opportunities for improving access to healthy, safe and affordable housing in our communities.
  3. Identify priorities for moving forward together as a network for rural housing in Nova Scotia.

To learn more about the event and the conversations that took place, see the event report and case studies, below.
