The Nova Scotia Jobs Fund pursues investment opportunities for assisting communities in transition, supporting industry sectors, offering regional support, assisting small businesses programs, and investing in infrastructure and large industrial ventures. The Jobs Fund is accountable to the province's Economic Investment Committee. This will ensure Nova Scotia makes the most of its economic development investments and considers the economic impacts of provincial investment decisions on communities throughout Nova Scotia. The fund also has a shared advisory board with Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI) and the Department of Economic and Rural Development and Tourism. In most business transactions, NSBI will be the main point of contact for the province's various types of investments. The shared advisory board consists of eight community economic development leaders from across the province.
