Shootings in Nova Scotia

April 20, 2020: 1:30 PM (EDT)

Today, we join Canadians across the country in shock and grief at the loss of life in Nova Scotia following the shootings over the weekend.

Our thoughts are with the families who have lost loved ones and colleagues across government affected by this tragedy. We are also thinking of the family and colleagues of RCMP Constable Heidi Stevenson, who was killed in the line of duty.

We send our condolences to our colleagues in Nova Scotia and across the Atlantic region, for whom this tragic event will be particularly challenging.

Please remember that support is always available to you and your family through the Employee and Organization Assistance Program

Let’s be extra kind and look out for one another during this difficult time
