HAAC thanks Winnie, a member of our extended HAAC family, for her work and role at the Department of Community Services in support of our communities. Please see her information below and her offer to work with all of us through these difficult times.

The Department of Community Services is responsible for providing Income Assistance and Employment Support Programing; Disability Support Programing; and Child Welfare Services across Nova Scotia.  The Department of Community Services is attempting to find effective and alternative ways to provide services to Nova Scotians during this time of COVID 19.

Winnie Grant, is particularly interested in ensuring that the needs of African Nova Scotians are identified and effectively met.  It is also important to plan ahead of any anticipated needs, hence this posting. Winnie is reaching out to you to gain insight into the identified needs specific to persons of African descent, in the Diaspora, and/or needs that have been challenging to fulfill, during these unprecedented times.I

If you have any needs you would like to submit to Winnie, please email her at
