Halifax Connects

Nova Scotia Legal Aid (NSLA) participated again this year in Halifax Connects. The event took place on Sunday, September 9th from 9:00 am-2:00 pm at Halifax Citadel. The event is organized by Shelter NS who brings together more than 200 volunteers and 30 plus community organizations and businesses to offer a day of caring and sharing to Nova Scotians experiencing, or at risk of experiencing homelessness. It is an opportunity for people to get a free haircut, hot meal, eye care, dentistry consults, care packages, school supplies, income tax returns completed, assistance with identification cards, flu shots, legal aid, etc. and learn about services in the community. Many thanks to Brittni Deveau, Articled Clerk, Halifax North Office, for helping out with the Legal Aid table – we had a steady stream of people looking for legal information and assistance with applying to Legal Aid.
