The NS Duke of Edinburgh's Award Provincial Board is comprised of members who are committed to The Award Programme and to its advancement across the province. The Nova Scotia Board has a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 30 members at any given time. We make a concerted effort to have a diverse Board, including Gold Award Achievers, Youth Representatives, and other various professionals who are able to share their time and expertise. If you have a specialized skill, the time to commit, and would like to volunteer for the Provincial Board or one of the sub-committees, please contact our office.
Our current Board members are as follows:
Honourary Provincial Chair
The Honourable J.J. Grant
Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia
As a non-profit organization, we are looking for ways to support and sustain the momentum of this great program. Thus, we have founded the Nova Scotia Provincial Board of Regents, the chair of which is Dr. Colin Dodds, President of Saint Mary’s University. Membership on the Board of Regents is limited and by invitation. Regents are asked to contribute a one-time donation to become life-long members and supporters of the Provincial Division.
Regents are recognized each year with a Regent’s Social, hosted by our Honourary Patron, the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia. Regents are also invited to all special events and the list of Regents is published in all our supporting documents (i.e.: website, newsletters, e-bulletins, programmes, etc.). The following individuals have generously agreed to join our Board of Regents and we are grateful for their significant contributions.
We would also like to thanks the following local donors for their generous support:
