We Tell the Stories of East Hants

The East Hants Historical Society, established in 1967, is a volunteer, non-profit organization devoted to the promotion and preservation of history within East Hants, NS, Canada.

Announcement--September 1, 2023

The Society is pleased to announce the receipt of Government of Canada funding under the Community Services Recovery Fund in the amount of $23,820 to support this project, which focuses on museum infrastructure, document content preservation, educational program development, and promotion of the past through video.

The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment of $400 million by the Government of Canada to help Community Service Organizations, charities, non-profits, and Indigenous governing bodies located in Canada.

“The projects supported by the Government of Canada through the Community Services Recovery Fund demonstrate that we are a caring and compassionate society that values the well-being of all its members. It is heartening to see the compassion and empathy of our citizens as they give back to those in need. Projects like Capturing and Sharing our Cultural History are a testament to the power of our collective action and our ability to come together to make a positive difference in the world. I am confident that together we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in the Municipality of East Hants).”
