about us

Connexions Introduction

Connexions’ aims to provide services that shift away from a brick and mortar model so that people are not asked to approach a specific location for resources; that may be inaccessible to them. We strive to bring Nova Scotians services and programming to the communities and the places that they use every day. All Nova Scotians should be able to access necessary services, regardless of personal circumstance. We also believe that service delivery should be based on data collected in each unique community-not based on universally obtained information, such as that collected in a provincial or national survey. Until now, there hasn’t been this type of focus on individual community needs.


Connexions work is based off the Connexions pillar strategy which is geared to engage beneficiaries in their own legacy through community. Built on the principal of ‘it takes a village’, Connexions integrates social and emotional learning components with supportive learning to facilitate necessary programs in the communities that need them. Our programs and services are unique to each need as we use the Connexions Strategy to create the change.


Connexions is divided into three departments: (1) Children, Youth and Families, (2) Community Development and Citizenship, and (3) Non-Profit and Partnership Building. We work together with these demographics, to develop partnership, create teamwork, and engage everyone in bettering our communities.
