Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame

We celebrate Nova Scotia's business leaders and entrepreneurs


Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia provides hands-on experiential learning in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. Our core purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy. Programs focus on three educational pillars: financial literacy, workplace readiness, and entrepreneurship. Junior Achievement recruits volunteers from the business community to collaborate on the delivery of programs, which exposes students to real world business perspectives and ideas. 

Junior Achievement is helping to produce more financially literate graduates, with accelerated career paths and increased leadership potential. We celebrate entrepreneurship and we help students develop business skills. In fact, Achievers, are more likely to be managers than their peers, twice as likely to study and work in business and finance, and are 50% more likely to own their own business! Our work is directly linked to building workforce capacity and a strong and prosperous economy.

JA Nova Scotia
Building a Stronger Nova Scotia

My JA experience has been an amazing learning experience in my life. It has taught me many things I’ll need to know for the future such as the ins and outs of a company, time management and teamwork. I highly recommend that as many youth as possible participate in this wonderful program!
— HALEY BROWN, 2016 Company Program Achiever

Junior Achievement is playing a critical role in educating youth about entrepreneurship and we believe that JA should be in every school! Your continued support is critical to our success. For the school year of 2016-2017, JA Nova Scotia has big goals. We want to increase student engagement and reach 18,000 students province-wide. This represents a 35% increase over last year! To do so, we will need the assistance of over 1,200 volunteers. To reach our program goals, we also need to increase investor support by 30%. Our fundraising goal is $1,113,300.

Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia is a non-profit, charitable organization and the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame is an integral fundraiser for the organization.
