NSRAP has been working since 1995 across Nova Scotia as a voice for our right to legal and social equality. Over the last 15 years NSRAP has been a strong advocate for the rights of our communities. NSRAP played a key role in the Halifax Rainbow Health Project and continues to work on Transgender health issues, including provincial funding of Sex Reassignment Surgeries, and the rights of LGBT Elders in long term care. NSRAP has participated in numerous human rights cases involving same-sex rights, and was instrumental in bringing marriage equality to Nova Scotians.
NSRAP believes in working collaboratively throughout the Community and with government, businesses, institutions, and individuals to foster change.
