The diversity of our communities contributes significantly to the well-being of all Nova Scotians and enriches the experiential opportunities for visitors. The Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage recognizes that involvement by Nova Scotia’s of diverse populations in cultural and community activities contribute to the social, economic, educational, and spiritual life of welcoming communities. 

The Diversity and Community Capacity Fund (DCCF) invests in the capacity-building efforts of organizations that represent traditionally marginalized communities and promote diversity and social equity.  The Cultural Communities and Identities Fund (CCIF), a companion program, supports activities which recognize and celebrate the diversity of Nova Scotia’s new, emerging, and established cultural communities. By embracing and sharing our cultural identities, our province becomes a more welcoming, resilient, and creative place to live.
