Our PLan for Recovery and Growth:
This is our time, Nova Scotia

This is our moment. We didn’t let the pandemic stop us. We rolled up our sleeves and got to work. 
But now we’ve got a choice. We can turn aside, miss our chance – or we can seize the day. We can build on our progress on the economy, on the environment, on equity. We’ve got a plan for recovery and growth and there’s no time to waste.

Nova Scotia is ready to take the next step. We’re building an economy where business can grow and hire. We are working toward a strong recovery. The stakes couldn’t be higher. We have an opportunity, right now, and an obligation to leave a better legacy for our children – by increasing equity, protecting the environment and building a better tomorrow.

This is our time. This is our future – and you have a say in what it looks like. We brought in once-in-a-generation childcare. We’re increasing access to affordable housing, rejuvenating our long-term care sector and building state-of-the-art health facilities. Our economy is preparing Nova Scotia – and Nova Scotians – for the jobs of tomorrow. If we want this future, we can’t wait. Nova Scotia is ready for a new era – this is our time.

Our commitments

We're providing $10/day childcare, help for at risk youth, and more affordable housing

A strengthened economy where business can grow and hire

Supporting business innovation, cutting business red tape, and making N.S. a start-up capital

Nova Scotia is ready to grow. We’re building an economy where business can thrive. How? We’re unleashing the innovative power of Nova Scotians. Our plan is optimistic. It builds on traditional strengths like agriculture and powers the industries of tomorrow. We’re helping small businesses and tourism. And we’re getting competitive. We’ve cut $10 million in red tape and our Economic Growth Council is helping us cut another $30M. This means people can start businesses and industry can hire, innovate, and grow.

Nova Scotia won’t just be a start-up capital – it’ll be a scale-up capital, too.

Making life more affordable and equitable for Nova Scotians

Providing $10/day childcare, help for at risk youth, and building more affordable housing

For too long, groups of Nova Scotians have been left out – or priced out – of joining in our collective prosperity. No more. Our Party puts equity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do. We made the largest single investment in income assistance this year. We’re bringing in affordable childcare through a historic, $645 million agreement with the federal government. We’re increasing access to housing by committing $25M toward the immediate recommendations of the Affordable Housing Commission Report. All this means that Nova Scotians will have more opportunity, more support, more chance to succeed. 

We believe that if everyone has the chance to prosper, we all benefit.

Ensuring workers have the skills today for the jobs of tomorrow

Improving access to skills training and apprenticeships, launching a plan for life-long learning

As we build the economy of tomorrow, we’re building the workforce of tomorrow, too. Part of this means helping our traditional industries to innovate and adapt – like seeing agriculture and forestry grow more sustainably. It also means empowering youth. We’re encouraging innovation by investing in our universities and community colleges. This means expanding capacity in information technology, green energy and in the nursing and health professions. The jobs of tomorrow are there for the taking – and we want Nova Scotians to be first in line.

A cleaner, greener Nova Scotia by 2030

We're building more affordable wind and solar energy, greening public transit, investing in provincial parks

Nova Scotia is beautiful. We want to protect our province by preserving our environment and promoting sustainability. And we will take action. We’re tackling climate change by cutting emissions. We’re getting Nova Scotia off coal by 2030. We’re making electricity more affordable and sustainable by promoting renewable energy. And we’re protecting our ecosystems, too – approaching our goal of designating 14 percent of our province as protected areas. The time for action is now – and we know it.

Investing in quality care

Building state-of-the-art medical facilities, expanding access to mental health supports, rejuvenating long-term care homes and enhancing homecare services

Nova Scotians aren’t numbers. They’re people with voices and lived experiences. And we believe people need quality care with a focus on wellbeing. We bring to health care the same dedication and evidence-based approach we bring to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re building world-class medical facilities. We’re expanding access to mental health supports. And we’re giving our seniors the respect they deserve. We’ve invested over $1 billion dollars in Long-Term Care. We’re revitalizing LTC to reduce wait times and provide more comfortable homes. We’re there for you, Nova Scotia, and we always will be.
