Partnership for Access Awareness Nova Scotia (PAANS)

The PAANS committee is a cross -sectoral committee madeup of partners from nonprofit organizations, corporate organizations, governments, academica, and the disability community. PAANS comes together each year to celebrate and commemorate the annual Access Awareness Week Nova Scotia and have been doing it for 37 years!

Thank you to all our partners from within our community who come to the table to craft events and awareness activities.  The PAANS partners also provide supports and toolkits to regions and communities around the province who also want to deliver programs and activities.
