Dear Vendor/Extra Curricular Resource/Post-Secondary Representative,

The HEMS (Helping Encouraging Mentoring Serving) association is a provincial support group representing families around Nova Scotia, who have chosen homeschooling as an educational alternative for their family. Over the past two decades, HEMS has hosted annual conferences and curriculum resource fairs each spring. This year, HEMS is once again inviting and encouraging you to participate in this opportunity.

Our 2020 Conference is being held on Friday and Saturday June 12-13 at Forest Hills Fellowship Church, 915 Cole Harbour Rd, Dartmouth, NS B2V 1E5.

Set up is available Friday afternoon from 12 pm to 4 pm. The vendor hall will be open Friday from 5 pm – 7 pm and Saturday from 8 am to 4 pm. The goal of the Conference is to showcase some of the most exceptional and beneficial materials and resources available to home educators as well as provide them with information on post secondary opportunities.

On Saturday, lunch will be provided for two vendor representatives from each organization.  Additional lunches will be available for purchase at $6.

For vendors and information resources who wish to attend, we rent booths for $25 CDN each. Each booth will fit one 6×3 table and two chairs.  Tables are included in your rental fee, however, you are free to use your own display resources.  Vendors are required to provide their own table dressing.

Space is reserved on a first come first served basis. Confirmation of your booking will be forwarded to you when payment is received. This year, we have provided an online registration via our website . If you are unable to register online, cheques or money orders should be made payable to Stephanie Jackson and sent to the vendor coordinator (address above). All payments must be made in Canadian currency.

Every vendor who reserves space at our Conference is invited to write a half-page product review article which we will include free of charge in our winter/spring newsletter. The goal of these articles is to give our members advance notice of new or special products they will want to make a point of seeing at the Conference. Please forward your article to

For your conveniences, we have reserved a block of rooms at the Hearthstone Inn Boutique Hotel.  All details for the room registration can be found here:

The registration deadline for this year’s conference is April 30, 2020.

Thank you for your time and interest in support of home education in Nova Scotia. If you require more information, please feel free to contact me or you can visit our website .

I look forward to hearing from you.
