DISTRICT N 2
Our district, which includes 68 Lions Clubs, encompasses the province of Nova Scotia, commonly referred to as "Canada's Ocean Playground." Lionism first came to Nova Scotia in 1945 with the chartering of a club in the province's capital, the city of Halifax. We are one of four sub-districts in Multiple District N, the Atlantic provinces of Canada.
The same year clubs were chartered in Dartmouth and Middleton. In 1946, four more clubs were chartered in Bedford, Parrsboro, Shubenacadie and Truro. Lionism moved into Cape Breton in 1948 with the charter of clubs in New Waterford and Sydney.
District N 2 has four Leo Clubs and seven Lioness/ Lionette Clubs.
We are proud to have had two International Directors from our district who represented Constitutional Area 2 on the LCI Board. PID Len Giffen, Milford & District Lions Club, and PID Jim Sherry, Sackville Lions Club, served the Lions of Nova Scotia with distinction during their terms.
