Since opening, Casino Nova Scotia has contributed $1 million annually to Nova Scotia Department of Health to encourage responsible gambling awareness. Proportionally, this is the largest contribution to responsible gambling made by a Canadian casino. A portion of the fund has been used to set up and operate the Province problem gambling help line.
