African Heritage Month 2021
As ISANS works to help immigrants settle in Nova Scotia, our goal is to share information with our clients and partners about the diverse communities that exist and thrive across this province. This micro-site is dedicated to the vital legacy of African Nova Scotians and the long-standing history of their contributions to Nova Scotia’s development.
With this interactive map, we hope to highlight the settlement journey, culture, and achievements of African Nova Scotian communities.
We hope the resources below are helpful and ignite your curiosity to do further research. If you have any questions or want to add to this interactive map, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
