A Pivotal Presentation: 1997 Nova Scotia Multi-Departmental Meeting on School Health & Safety
This presentation marked the pivotal day when five of Nova Scotia’s government departments began working in a more coordinated fashion towards improving school environmental health and safety across the province. The systems for operating and maintaining existing schools needed improvement. The departments continued to meet over the years and continued the joint efforts. Nova Scotia became a leader in healthy school operation and creation. Perhaps this model for improvements may help others accomplish similar goals.
