Vision

To provide clarity around the causes, context and circumstances that led to the April 2020 mass casualty in Nova Scotia and make meaningful recommendations to help protect Canadians.

Values

Independence
This Commission is independent of any governments, institutions or other associations of individuals or groups.

Respect
In order to create a thorough, evidence-based record, difficult questions will need to be asked and uncomfortable facts will need to be considered. We intend to perform our duties with compassion and with an unwavering commitment to a full, transparent, and independent inquiry.

Transparency
The Commission’s process will be inclusive, accessible, transparent, and conducted with humanity. The Commission will listen, learn, investigate, and share what has been brought to light in a final public report, with sustainable recommendations, and a thorough, evidence-based record.
