Call for Submissions: Nova Scotia's Coastal Protection Act

Nova Scotia’s government is seeking feedback from citizens about the Coastal Protection Act’s regulations. This Act is intended to protect coastal ecosystems and to keep Nova Scotia safe in the face of coastal climate change by stopping inappropriate coastal development. Nova Scotians concerned about coastal development can now share their thoughts on proposed rules that will determine what can and cannot be built on the province’s vulnerable coastlines.


Submissions are open until September 30, 2021.

Make a submission for the Coastal Protection Act public consultations here.


The Ecology Action Centre and East Coast Environment Law are hosting three identical virtual information sessions to help you understand the Act and make an educated submission to the public consultation process.

Register for one of the sessions here:

September 15 at 4:00pm AST

September 20 at 7:00 AST

September 27 at 12:00 AST
