This is a non-profit Society registered under the Societies Act of the Province of Nova Scotia. The Society is made up of a membership that elects the Board of Trustees (from their ranks) to operate the Society on their behalf.

Members can attend meetings, elect the board, sit on committees, receive and approve annual reports including audited financial statements, receive An Rubha (bi-annual newsletter), receive notices for events and feel a sense of pride in contributing to Nova Scotia's Gaelic culture. Membership is open to everyone. For more information about becoming a member click here.

Award of Merit

In 1979, to mark the 20th anniversary of the Nova Scotia Highland Village Society, the board instituted an annual Award of Merit program. The program was designed to recognise those who have made outstanding contributions to the Highland Village and/or to Gaelic culture in Nova Scotia.
