EXECUTIVE COUNCIL--Positions Available on Agencies, Boards and Commissions
Nova Scotians have an opportunity to serve their community and grow their careers by becoming a member of one of the province's 150 agencies, boards or commissions. Applications are now being accepted and all residents of the province are eligible to apply.
People can apply to serve on a variety of agencies, boards and commissions, ranging from colleges and boards of self-regulated health professions, such as the colleges of chiropractors, counselling therapists, physiotherapists and paramedics, to cultural organizations, such as Arts Nova Scotia, and police advisory boards.
Applications for some opportunities are due by Nov. 19. Applications for many other positions are accepted year-round. To find out more and apply, visit www.novascotia.ca/abc, or call 902-424-4877 or 1-866-206-6844.
Applicants are assessed based on their skills and qualifications, taking into account the needs of the individual agency, board or commission. Applications will be considered for both current and upcoming vacancies. Typically, appointees are reimbursed for expenses, and in some cases, paid a modest amount for their services.
In order to increase the diversity of the agencies, boards and commissions, applications are encouraged from women, Mi'kmaq and other Indigenous people, African Nova Scotians and other racially visible people, persons with disabilities, Acadian Nova Scotians, immigrants and newcomers and persons from the 2LGBTQ+ community.
