BBI Task Force Report

On May 24, 1995, a five-member Task Force of the Black Business Initiative was set up to consult with the Black community throughout Nova Scotia. The Task Force tabled its final report to the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and the Provincial Ministry of Economic Renewal Agency on August 31, 1995. The following are excerpts from the report.

Tourism Roundtable

In 2007, we initiated a study to assess the tourism potential and market-readiness of Black cultural experiences in Nova Scotia and to develop strategies to enable those attractions/experiences to realize their full promise as part of the Nova Scotia tourism mix.

Construction Sector Roundtable

In January 2000, we held a discussion on the participation of the African Nova Scotian companies in the Construction Industry.

Food Services Roundtable

On November 24, 2004 the BBI hosted a roundtable on the food service industry. The goal of the roundtable was to identify issue that may impact on African Canadians within this industry.
