N.S. dissolves gambling awareness organization, reallocates funds from VLTs – CBC
January 24, 2021
The Nova Scotia government has quietly dissolved a non-profit arm’s-length government organization dedicated to funding gambling prevention and research groups, moving the money to a more general mental health pool.
The decision to end Gambling Awareness Nova Scotia (GANS) is being criticized by a community group that received grants through the organization, and which says there’s now looming uncertainty about whether its work will be supported.
