Our registered non-profit’s goals are to work towards girls’ participation in leadership, social justice, empowerment, and gender equality. Co-founders Susan Brigham and Cassandra McDonald are proud of their success in planning and running the annual Girls Conference at Mount Saint Vincent University from 2012-2020 and are excited to continue their work with girls across Nova Scotia under the auspices of NSGIRL.

Past Events

On Saturday August 28, 2021 we held our first girls’ summer program called “Accept No Limits!”

Our summer program provided interactive learning opportunities that focused on understanding social justice issues, building self-confidence, developing communication skills, developing leadership skills, exploring careers, and the many ways that girls and young women can make a difference in their communities.

Workshop facilitators offered interactive workshops on leadership, empowerment, and creativity.

**Our use of the term ‘girl’ includes cis and trans girls, as well as genderqueer or non-binary people and other gender minorities.

***Sponsored by The Nova Scotia Advisory Council on The Status of Women

Visit our YouTube channel for our International Day of the Girl Child videos that were released on Friday October 8, 2021!

There’s no limit to what we as women can accomplish.
