Welcome to Special Olympics Nova Scotia: Promoting Inclusion, Dignity & Respect through Sport

Special Olympics Nova Scotia – Local Impact

Through the power of sport, we offer a gateway to empowerment, competence and acceptance. Special Olympics Nova Scotia provides sport training and regional, national and international competition opportunities for 1500 local athletes of all ages and abilities. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability through sport.

Special Olympics – An International Movement

Special Olympics is a global movement that unleashes the human spirit through the transformative power and joy of sports, every day around the world. We empower people with intellectual disabilities to become accepted and valued members of their communities, which leads to a more respectful and inclusive society for all. Using sports as the catalyst and programming around health and education, Special Olympics is fighting inactivity, injustice and intolerance.
