Free Email Subscription Services

Are you interested in receiving:

  1. Information on when public hearings are going to occur (Hearing Notices)?
  2. Decisions of the Board when they are issued to the public?

If so, you may be interested in signing up for our free email service. Just send us an e-mail at board@novascotia.ca and tell us whether you would like Notices, Decisions or both. If there is a particular topic area you are interested in (e.g. electricity, gasoline, etc) we can limit the emails to that topic, just tell us which ones you are interested in.

Unsubscribing is easy. Send us an e-mail at any time and we will remove you from the list or topic that no longer interests you.

Please note, we do Tweet all Notices and Decisions as well. If you are interested in the Twitter service we are @NSUARB and you can "follow" us at any time.

Access to Information

While the majority of records held by the Board are a matter of public record, some information is protected by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. That act provides an opportunity to seek records from public bodies subject to submitting applicable requests and fees. In an effort to reduce the administrative burden involved in getting certain types of routine records the government requires departments, agencies, boards and commissions to have a simplified application process. This process is set out in the Board's Routine Access Policy.
