Since its inception, @NS has spent tens of thousands of dollars replacing and upgrading technology at Community Technology sites throughout Nova Scotia. This includes replacing aging laptops, desktops and printers.
Each summer, @NS places several students (high school, college and university) at Community Technology sites throughout Nova Scotia, giving them excellent experience in the fields of technology and interaction with the public.
From December of 2016 to March of 2017, @NS administered a program that placed more than 50 people between the ages of 18 and 30 in internships designed to give them experience in positions centered around technology.
IN 2017, @NS entered into an agreement with The Province of Nova Scotia (through the Department of Business) to receive funding to set up high speed internet in an area of Shortts Lake, Colchester County.
