Information for Nova Scotia Electoral District Associations

In each of the fifty-one electoral districts, registered parties may establish Electoral District Associations (EDA).  Each EDA must be registered with ENS, including an annual renewal. An EDA is endorsed by the leader of the registered party to further the goals of the registered party.

Several resources are available for the Official Agent of an EDA to use, including a Handbook and several Forms. (links)

Annual reporting is required. The forms for this reporting are 4-1 through 4-4.
