Provincial government offices in Halifax Regional Municipality will delay opening until 10 a.m. today, February 14, due to transit delays caused by the winter storm.

Provincial government offices in Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Richmond, Victoria, Inverness, Pictou, Antigonish and Guysborough counties will delay opening until at least noon due to impacts from the storm. An update will be available at 11 a.m.

All other provincial offices will be open regular hours unless there is a local issue such as a power outage. Nova Scotians planning to visit an office are advised to check that it is open before leaving home.

Decisions regarding court operations are made on a case-by-case basis with the judiciary. People with matters before the court should check with their lawyer or contact the courthouse to confirm the status of their matter.
