Welcome to the Orientation for the Seniors’ Legal Info Navigator program.

The Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia (LISNS) created this program. It aims to train volunteers who want to help Nova Scotians make a Personal (healthcare) Directive using an online app.  

LISNS is a charitable non-profit organization trusted by Nova Scotians to provide free legal Information and help since 1982. Our mission is to empower Nova Scotians to identify, prevent and solve legal issues

All information collected in this orientation is stored according to LISNS’ privacy policy. By proceeding with this orientation, you are agreeing to do so at your own risk. 

Once you have completed the orientation, you will receive a certificate of completion.  You then have the option of signing up as a navigator and will be included on our LISNS Navigator database. We use an online matching program to connect Navigators with Nova Scotians who need help to create their personal directive. If you choose not to sign up with our online matching platform, you can still complete the orientation, but we won’t be able to connect you with people who need help. 

On the right you can see all of the lessons for this orientation. You may come back to the orientation at any time; the course always saves your progress. Each lesson is followed by a short survey which we ask that you complete.  Your feedback will help us provide Navigators with the best information possible.
