Community resources and involvement

There are various resources and supports to help you live positively in your community. The following are resources that you may find helpful to support you in connecting with Community Resources, or getting involved in your own community.

NSCC Living in Nova Scotia: A Resource Guide for Students

We have developed our NSCC Living in Nova Scotia: A Resource Guide for Students to assist you in gaining knowledge and skills for living in Nova Scotia. The primary goal of this guide, which contains information relevant to all campuses, is to provide you with knowledge and tools in how to search for housing, being successful tenants and understanding how to be safe in your local and campus communities. All students who complete this guide can take a short quiz and receive a digital statement of completion.
