Thank you for visiting Nova Scotia Health’s Volunteer Services page.

Volunteer Services is very pleased to be able reintroduce volunteer programs. We are adopting a considered, phased in approach determined by the need for volunteers in certain areas, while keeping our patients, visitors, staff, and volunteers safe as we follow COVID safety protocols.
