Emma Halpern

Emma is the co-founder of PATH and the Executive Director of EFMNS, a position she’s held since 2017. After graduating from the Dalhousie Law School in 2006, Emma articled with Dalhousie’s legal aid clinic and was called to the Nova Scotia bar in 2007. Prior to joining PATH, Emma worked with Dalhousie’s legal aid clinic and as the Equity and Access Officer at the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society. Emma was awarded the Canadian Bar Association’s 2013 Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Conference Ally Award and was inducted into the Bertha Wilson Honour Society in 2018. When not acting in her role as Legal Manager or Executive Director, you’ll find Emma working in other capacities within EFMNS and volunteering her free time to support both staff and clients. Outside of EFMNS and PATH, Emma enjoys spending time with her family, staying active, and embracing opportunities to further her education and experiences.
