Nova Scotia Nine update

A quick update: The Nova Scotia Nine portrait collection, which now hangs in the lovely, new boardroom at RBC Dominion Securities at Purdy’s Wharf, has been acquired by RBC for their national art collection.

These large-scale, contemporary portraits honor women who accomplished amazing things on Nova Scotia soil. Their faces, and stories, are not well known but history reveals they powerfully influenced Nova Scotia’s – and, in many cases, Canada’s – culture, heritage and society.

A book about The Nova Scotia Nine was recently produced by the Nova Scotia government and launched at the Lt.-Governor’s House during a ceremony marking International Women’s Day.
