2019 Directions Council Gift Guide

The Directions Council and its members are excited to introduce their first Holiday Catalogue featuring Nova Scotia products and services from over 15 member social enterprises.

The catalogue is divided by region. Within each region you will find member information pages highlighting products and services produced by our terrific teams.

For our socially conscious community members, your gift purchases from this catalogue have the power to give twice – once to that special someone on your list and once to our local member agency committed to building inclusive Nova Scotia communities.

Embrace the holiday spirit and bring joy to everyone involved in the creation, receiving and purchasing of the gift of socially conscience consuming.

On behalf of our 30 member agencies and our teams, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

The DirectioNS Council of Nova Scotia is very pleased to announce it has entered into a partnership agreement with Divert NS. Divert NS is contributing $100,000 to DirectioNS, to finance the development and implementation of waste diversion initiatives by our member agencies and/or approved partner agencies in Nova Scotia. For over 20 years, Divert NS has worked to help foster a culture of recycling in Nova Scotia. Divert NS operates two primary, or core recycling programs: the Beverage Container Deposit‐Refund Program and the Used Tire Management Program. These two highly successful programs are the core of Divert NS’s business and have been embraced across Nova Scotia. Divert NS also manages a network of Enviro‐Depots in over 75 locations throughout the province. In addition, they work in partnership with provincial and municipal government, industry, and academia to divert waste‐resources from landfill.The DirectioNS Council is a not-for-profit organization representing 30 member agencies throughout Nova Scotia. The Council’s mandate is to support member organizations in promoting the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the life of their community. All agencies operate social enterprise businesses, many of which are focused on waste diversion.
