A Result of the Africville Agreement

As a result of the February 2010 negotiated settlement between the Africville Genealogy Society and the Halifax Regional Municipality, the African Nova Scotian Affairs Integration Office (ANSAIO) was created. Its role is to enable the municipality to better engage with the African Nova Scotian community.

ANSAIO continues to build strong relationships, partnerships and alliances within the African Nova Scotian communities across the municipality which all business units can take advantage of when working with these communities. As part of the diversity and inclusion office, ANSAIO is an integral part of the municipal government's structure and an asset for making each business unit stronger and thereby, building a stronger municipality.
