Human Rights Awards

Each year, the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission presents Awards to Nova Scotian individuals and organizations who make meaningful contributions to the Commission’s mission of attaining a just, equitable, and inclusive society in Nova Scotia. These Awards are presented on or around December 10, in recognition of the United Nations’ International Human Rights Day.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Nova Scotia Human Rights Awards.

Given ongoing public health restrictions due to COVID-19, recipients of this year's awards will be honoured virtually. There will be no in-person ceremony. Details of this year's award recipients and how they will be recognized will be made available prior to December 10, 2020.

Completed nomination forms and support materials should be emailed to by Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. AST.
