Our Mission

We strive to promote and advance, according to the principles of the Antigonish Movement, the economic self-reliance and social well-being of the people of Atlantic Canada through economic cooperation and education.

Our Approach

We seek to be agents of change for our partners, organizations, and society at large. At the heart of our approach is the development philosophy that adult learning and collective action are necessary for individuals, communities, and organizations to create vibrant and resilient communities. We follow a straight-forward strategy of “listening, learning, discussing, and acting.”

Our History

When the Extension Department was established in 1928, it was dedicated to revitalizing the communities of northeastern Nova Scotia through a people-centered approach to development, which became known as the Antigonish Movement. This Movement has created a vibrant legacy that continues to ignite our passion for the work that we do today, more than 90 years since its beginning.
