About Us

The African Nova Scotian Directory (ANSD) is a service that connects people to the African Nova Scotian community online. www.ansd.ca


ANSD offers site visitors the ability to search for and/or contribute to a comprehensive public database of African Nova Scotian points of interest including, but not limited to, culture, food, business, spirituality, education, and music.


By offering an expansive public database of businesses, events, and cultural information, the African Nova Scotian Directory is an integral part of Nova Scotia’s virtual landscape. In today’s fast paced, technologically advanced, information driven society, an online directory will draw positive attention to business, arts, and cultural opportunities originating from Canada’s largest indigenous black population.


ANSD has identified three keys that will improve unity and awareness thought-out the African Nova Scotian community.


The first key is to improve access to information sharing throughout the African Nova Scotian community by creating a comprehensive database.


The second key is to provide a centralized platform where individuals, businesses, societies, organizations, and government groups can implement communication strategies that increase awareness of programs, services, and events within the African Nova Scotian community and abroad.


The last key is to offer appealing time sensitive advertising packages that enable advertisers to benefit from the high traffic potential of ANSD.


ANSD is the first and only directory of its kind dedicated to connecting aspects of African Nova Scotian life using Android and IOS apps.
