How the Black Educators Association is enhancing African Nova Scotian education across the province.
African Nova Scotian history has been under-represented in Nova Scotia’s education system for decades.

Enter the Black Educators Association (BEA), an organization that exists to help supplement what is missing in the education system.
Founded over 50 years…

Rafflebox takes this seriously and is doing our part by hiring strong, qualified women to lead and support our growing team. Giving women equal…

Most firefighters are quite humble and are used to doing their jobs with little acknowledgment. In fact, many people may not realize the impact these unsung heroes have on their community…until they need them.
Angie Arsenault, rookie Prince Edward Island (PEI) firefighter, said it best: “Firefighters are good at what they do, but not so good at telling everybody what they do. …
