The human experience is defined by connection. To be connected is to have bonds, links, and relationships with the people, environments, and many things that bring meaning to our lives. These can be close in proximity, but they can also span communities, countries, culture, and even time.
This year, our report explores how we've fostered connection for our clients, as well as how our work has benefitted from the strong connections we have with the community and our partners.
Message from the Chair
"Connection is our unifying ingredient"
As an immigrant myself, it is a privilege for me to chair the ISANS Board and reflect on our past year in this annual report. Each person newly arriving to Nova Scotia has a unique story, but there are always commonalities among us.
Message from the CEO
"Committed to connection and enrichment"
We have strengthened connections through digital literacy training and supports, blended service delivery, and educational resources – such as accessible vaccine information – that enables immigrants to develop confidence and skills to engage and integrate more fully in our community.
