Climb Nova Scotia Slideshow

Climb Nova Scotia receives annual funding from the Nova Scotia provincial government via NS Health Promotion and Protection. Our funding is up for review this year so we are busy getting all the paperwork together at the moment.

Mick and Scott recently delivered a presentation to our funding partners and a number of fellow provincial recreation organizations to give a snapshot of our operations. Please take a look through our presentation slides if you are interested - you might be surprised by how much we do every year!
