Sr. Marie Michael MacKinnon, the Institute's first librarian, was involved with the women's program of the social and economic renewal movement in Eastern Canada known as the Antigonish Movement for many years. The Coady International Institute is a university-based training centre for development workers from the South; the Mary Michael Library is an integral part of the Institute. In recent years the library developed a special focus on gender and development. Two specific grants have allowed it to build a strong collection. The library has also published three titles relating to gender and maintains a website.

Universal Shelter Association
Bloomfield Centre
2786 Agricola Street
Halifax, Nova Scotia B3K 4E1
Canada
The Universal Shelter Association is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization founded on the belief that every person has the right to live their life free from violence and abuse. The services provided by the Universal Shelter Association are designed to be sensitive to the diversity of our community in terms of culture, language, sexual orientation, physical ability, and/or level of income. We believe that a family can be defined as individuals who live together in the same household, and family violence refers to the abuse that can occur between and among individuals who are related by affection, kinship and trust. Family violence can include physical, emotional, financial, political, or religious abuse. Family violence has no boundaries based on culture, race, religion, class, or gender. We offer counseling, crisis intervention and refuge to anyone who wishes to leave a violent situation. Victims of family violence receive emergency shelter and care in safe houses registered with the Universal Shelter Association. Our safe homes are private residences located throughout the Metro-Halifax area and beyond, and are maintained by our dedicated group of volunteers. Shelter from abuse is an essential first step in regaining control over one's life. It is our purpose to provide that first step.
