novaknowledge’s New Years Resolution for Nova Scotia.


I commit to novaknowledge’s Top 8 for ‘08 – New Years Resolution for Nova Scotia.

I will …

1. Get Active
Change image, attitudes and policies. Take actions that ensure health and wellness promotion and injury prevention become paramount in my organization, promote my province as a progressive and innovative place to learn, work and raise a family.

2. Think Big
Reduce the impact of regionalism on Nova Scotia’s economic and social development. We will become strong and prosperous by collaborating with all communities and regions for the betterment of the entire province.

3. Do Away with “CFA”
Become more welcoming to new Canadians and new Nova Scotians by encouraging my organization, friends, and colleagues to employ new Nova Scotians and support the campaign to eliminate the term “come from away” and “CFA”.

4. Learn Something New
Challenge my organization to increase investment in workforce training to 2% of revenue and encourage others to do the same!

5. Spend Wisely
Call on government and business leaders to find additional ways to increase wages and to help reduce student debt. This will reduce the out-migration of young workers. I will encourage my organization to hire recent graduates and international students.

6. Help Others
Improve literacy and numeracy in my province by calling on all levels of government to increase funding and implement additional incentives.

7. “Come to Life”
Strive to highlight successes and recognize progress in Nova Scotia.

8. Lead by Example
Support the creation of a Nova Scotia Leaders’ Council to help lead the charge on productivity, innovation, the adoption of technology, foster forward-thinking attitudes, and recommend leading-edge public policy.
