Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP)

Nova Scotia Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Employee & Family Assistance Program

Affordable pricing for the IONS EFAP program

These are uncertain and stressful times for the 20,000 paid staff and the 51% of the population who volunteer in the For-Impact (nonprofit and voluntary) sector in the province. For many of us, demands for services are increasing while funding remains unpredictable. Most everyone in our organizations and in their families are facing challenges. Many nonprofit and voluntary organizations have not been able to provide an employee and family assistance program (EFAP). 

Impact Organizations of Nova Scotia (IONS) is delighted to be working with HumanaCare and New Ground Financial Inc. to address this gap by offering an affordable EFAP to organizations in our sector. The plan launched on February 1, 2021 and we now have 23 organizations and over 500 subscribers covered.  

If you are interested in joining the program at the secured rate of $2.84/person/month*, please complete the form below. 

In the meantime, please note the resources below for more detailed information on how the program works and what is included (videos and pdf’s). You’ll also note below the most commonly asked questions we received about the administration of the program. 

We recognize and celebrate the resilience of the sector and at the same time acknowledge that these are difficult times. We look forward to working together with you so you can continue to serve your clients and fulfill your missions while at the same time, ensure your staff and volunteers are supported. Everyone wins. 

* Please note:  This price is not inclusive of HST. IONS will add a 10% Administrative fee to help cover our costs to administer this benefits program
