The Nova Scotia 55+ Games Society was formed in November of 2003 under the initiative of the Nova Scotia Senior Citizen’s Secretariat (now known as the NS Dept. of Seniors). In February of 2004 the organiation was incorporated under the Nova Scotia Societies Act.
Like the CANADA 55+ GAMES ASSOCIATION, the mission of the Nova Scotia 55+ Games organization is to bring together individuals from across the province, aged 55+, to an event featuring games of both physical and mental challenges, and at the same time provide a venue emphasizing social interaction. Through bi-annual Nova Scotia 55+ Games, as well as support for any other like games at the Regional, Zone or community levels, the Society encourages a healthier and more active lifestyle for older adults in Nova Scotia.
