Summer Street Society

The Summer Street Society is a registered charity dedicated to creating opportunities and a better life for people who have intellectual disability. 

We own two facilities comprising over 30,000 square feet in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. One facility features personal development programs that offer a variety of individual training opportunities designed to maximize personal potential. The other is home to social enterprise and vocational training/employment services which include training and developing work skills, job related interpersonal skills, habits and attitudes. 

Summer Street has the largest banquet space in Pictou County, a well established trophy & awards business and substantial classroom space including an adaptive technology computer lab.

Summer Street delivers work experience and educational programs for people with learning disabilities and barriers to employment through a rented satellite operation.
