Individuals interested in serving the public on adjudicative agencies, boards and commissions are asked to send their applications to the province.
Adjudicative agencies, boards and commissions have quasi-judicial functions and serve various roles and diverse interests. They are established by statute or regulation. Board members review evidence, make findings of fact and law, and make decisions affecting a person's liberty, security or legal rights.
"The participation of Nova Scotians as members of provincial adjudicative boards is fundamental to the successful administration of government," said Frank Corbett, Deputy President of the Executive Council. "Agency, board and commission members help to make democracy work for everyone."
Appointments to adjudicative agencies, boards and commissions are based on an assessment of the skills and qualifications of the prospective candidate and the needs to be filled.
For a complete list of opportunities or to learn more about the appointment process, visit the Executive Council Office website at www.gov.ns.ca/exec_council/abc/ or call 902-424-4877 or toll free 1-866-206-6844.
Closing date for applications is Nov. 9.
The government of Nova Scotia has an Employment Equity Policy and welcomes applications from Aboriginal people, African Nova Scotians and other racially visible people, persons with disabilities and women. If you are a member of one of the equity groups, you are encouraged to self-identify on your application, covering letter or resume.
