The Commission is committed to improving service delivery. As part of service improvements, the Commission has developed a new streamlined inquiry process. Previously, you needed an access code to be generated to submit an inquiry. The new process involves an Inquiry Form that is available online for public access. If you want to submit an inquiry about a possible complaint under the Human Rights Act, please download the Inquiry Form and refer to the guide for assistance.

If you have already submitted an inquiry using an access code under our previous process please note your inquiry has been received and we will be in touch.

If you have any questions related to the Dispute Resolution process, please refer to the online guide that may provide clarity. If you require an accommodation or are unable to access the Inquiry Form, please call (902)424-4111 or email hrcinquiries@novascotia.ca.

If you are seeking information regarding programs or supports beyond those provided by the Commission, including housing, health, and continuing care, please contact the United Way’s 2-1-1 service. They can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and their services are offered in over 140 languages. You can visit them online at 211 Nova Scotia - NS 211, where you can communicate with an agent by chat or email, or you can phone or text 2-1-1.
