About PAANS...

In 1987, Rick Hansen's Man in Motion Tour brought issues of ability and access into the national spotlight. In response, National Access Awareness Week was born. The "national" scope of the week has petered out but provincially, the spirit of Hansen's quest lives on through Nova Scotia’s Access Awareness Week. Held at the end of May, the week aims to celebrate achievements made both by and for people with disabilities in the areas of accessibility, transportation, housing, employment, recreation, education and communication.

PAANS is a committee of the Nova Scotia League for Equal Opportunities and was created to oversee the planning of the week's events ensuring the week continued to be both vibrant and relevant to the needs of the province's citizens.


To promote the inclusion of all Nova Scotians with disabilities as full citizens within our communities. Through public awareness, community partnerships and education, we aim to foster an environment of equal participation for persons with disabilities within Nova Scotia.
