Support4Sport was introduced in 2006 by the Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation (formally the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation). Funds are raised through the sale of designated lottery products. Every time one of these products is sold, 100% of the proceeds go to help Nova Scotians get in the game. Since its inception this program has helped raise over $39 million which helps to develop community and provincial sport programs and to provide training and development opportunities for amateur athletes, coaches and officials. The allocation of Support4Sport funding is managed by our program partner, Sport Nova Scotia.
