Commission offices will be closed Friday, February 4, 2022, in accordance with the Provincial Government directive due to inclement weather.

Note: The NSHRC Halifax office will not be accepting in-person inquiries until January 31st. Should you wish to contact the Commission please do so by phone or email via the contact information below.

At this time callbacks in response to inquiries are delayed due to high volume. An increase in staff caseloads is also causing a delay in processing complaint files.  All inquiries and complaints are very important to us and we appreciate your continued patience.
