Description & Services

The Nova Scotia Amateur Sport Fund (hereafter the Sport Fund) started approximately 20 years ago as a means to raise money in order to support amateur sport in Nova Scotia. At that time, the fund was one of the few existing supports for sport programs, and provided funding assistance for many elements of the sport system, including athletes, coaches, officials, and provincial and community sport organizations. Over time, as additional funding programs were put in place, the fund evolved to focus on community sport organization support. The goal of the fund has been to support quality, sustainable programming, either by providing funds to help organizations create new programs, or expand and/or improve current programs in order to provide more opportunities for Nova Scotians to take part in sport.Today, we are happy to have a number of partners that have come together to support the growth of amateur sport in Nova Scotia.
