NS Reinstate Response

May 03, 2019



Rugby Canada and Rugby Nova Scotia are thrilled to learn of Nova Scotia Education Minister Zack Churchill's decision today to re-instate rugby at Nova Scotia high-schools.


"We are over whelmed at the outpouring of community support that has come not only from Nova Scotia, but across Canada and around the world. The sport of rugby is founded on honour, respect, camaraderie and community, and we firmly believe that these values play an important role in developing our youth both on and off the pitch. We extend our most sincere appreciation to the passionate rugby community, and to Minister Churchill for his leadership. Going forward, we are fully committed to working with the NSSAF and supporting them in our shared vision of ensuring a safe environment for our kids to play."
