The NSFA was formed in 1989 to provide Nova Scotians with a clear standard for evaluating the quality of fitness leadership in the province and to promote professionalism in the industry. As a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO), the NSFA is an unbiased source of fitness education and certification. We teach certification courses, offer continuing education workshops and an annual conference, provide insurance and liaise with national and international exercise registries on behalf of our members.

The NSFA is a member of the National Fitness Leadership Alliance (NFLA) of Canada. The National Fitness Leadership Alliance of Canada is a partnership of not-for-profit organizations dedicated to the advancement of exercise accreditation and leadership. NFLA Canada is dedicated to the promotion of active living for all Canadians. We do this by providing a variety of community-based services, education, accreditation and an unbiased transparent and standardized registration program to exercise professionals. NFLA represents Canadian exercise professionals in The International Confederation of Registers of Exercise Professionals (ICREPs)  which is an international partnership between organizations responsible for registration of exercise professionals around the world.

  NSFA certifications are recognized nationally and are transferable to any province/territory in Canada.  Exercise educators in provinces and territories that do not have their own board in the NFLA may join the NFLA via their nearest member board. Please see our NFLA/ICREPS page for further details.

NSFA credentials are also transferable internationally to fellow ICREPS  member nations.  Please visit our Colleagues & Sponsors page for more information   and links to NFLA & ICREPS.   All Regular members of the NSFA are transferable   within the NFLA & ICREPS. NSFA Associate members are not transferable as they do   not have NSFA certifications.




Certification starts as low as $550.00

Payment plans can be arranged for those who need one.  Please contact us at info@nsfitness.ca to arrange a payment plan before you register.
