Building Strong, Vibrant, and Prosperous African Nova Scotian Communities

Road to Economic Prosperity

For generations, African Nova Scotians have advocated for unity and prosperity, and have remained committed to building and maintaining their community by carrying each other’s challenges and solving them together.

Developed and led by community, the African Nova Scotian Road to Economic Prosperity Plan (REPP) is a five-year economic development strategy that aims to address systemic issues and improve economic and quality of life outcomes for African Nova Scotians.

Explore our vision, strategies, and actions to drive African Nova Scotians’ economic and social prosperity.

For Us, By Us, With Us
