NSCC's COVID-19 response: view updates


A program expanding post-secondary educational access for incarcerated Nova Scotians.

Formerly incarcerated Nova Scotians are less likely to consider a post-secondary education, which can negatively impact their employment and career opportunities. Access to academic and career exploration programs while incarcerated can be essential to obtaining a successful and productive life post-release.

Limitless is designed to:

  • Strengthen the skills and abilities of participants through four micro-sessions on self-evaluation and career development.
  • Support participants during their transition from incarceration to and through college.
  • Provide participants with short-term work experience during their program.

Program highlights

  • Participants who continue on to NSCC receive a partial bursary that’s applied towards the cost of their tuition.
  • At NSCC, participants will get work experience opportunities, allowing them to develop their skills while building their resume.

How to enrol in Limitless

  • Participants enrol during their time in a provincial correctional facility.
  • Limitless students must participate in Limitless programming provided in a provincial correctional facility before they continue on to NSCC.

Limitless is a partnership between the Nova Scotia Department of Justice, The Windsor Foundation and NSCC.
