The team at Dying With Dignity Canada has compiled a list of palliative and end-of-life care resources and support services in Nova Scotia to assist you and your loved ones, no matter your current stage of health.  

If you have specific questions about your end-of-life care, please contact your health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, feel free to contact Dying With Dignity Canada’s free-to-use Support Program by emailing support@dyingwithdignity.ca or by calling us toll free at 1-844-395-3640.
