Sport Nova Scotia realizes the benefits of sport participation to our health, communities, economy and youth. We also understand how effective a partnership can be in promoting and serving the growth of amateur sport in the province. By working with the following partners and sponsors, we are able to give Nova Scotians more information and opportunities to achieve health through sport.
In August 2006, the Support4Sport Program was launched by NSGC to help raise money for sport in Nova Scotia. The Support4Sport Program is projected to provide approximately $2 million annually for amateur sport by dedicating one hundred percent of profits from all Support4Sport Program branded lottery products. These funds go directly towards participation, coach employment, athlete assistance and the Nova Scotia Canada Games program. This funding creates opportunities in sport from playground to podium, for everyone from 5-year-olds who want to play soccer to 19-year-olds who want to compete in Olympic paddling, to 60-year-olds who want to play recreational tennis.
