Canada Awards for ExcellenceRecipient Profile
Department of Service Nova Scotia and Internal Services, Government of Nova Scotia
2019 Silver Recipient
Excellence, Innovation and Wellness®
Internal Services supported the public sector by delivering financial transactions, audits of government operations, information technology, and public sector procurement. Both departments achieved Bronze in Excellence, Innovation and Wellness® (EIW) in 2017, starting their work toward Silver shortly after.
In June 2019, the two departments were merged into the Department of Service Nova Scotia and Internal Services. The merger brought together the people, processes, and technology that support the services Nova Scotians expect of their government. Collectively, SNS-IS will represent end-to-end expertise. While their EIW Silver journeys started as separate entities, SNS-IS collaborated throughout the process, and celebrate the accomplishment of EIW Silver, and the continuation of their work in excellence, innovation and wellness together.
