Halifax is the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. It consists of four municipalities that were amalgamated in 1996 and became one community: Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, and Halifax County. Home of more than 400,000 residents, Halifax initially started off as a fishing area back in the 15th and 16th century by the Mi'kmaq indigenous people, until Europeans came to the area and started to spread out.

One of the first permanent European settlements in the area was on the Halifax Peninsula, which became the Town of Halifax later in 1749. After many wars waged in the town, Halifax slowly but surely became the town we know today, a town with a highly developed economy, high standards of living and a community-oriented government. As such, Halifax has installed energy-efficient lighting in public areas in an effort to turn the town into an eco-friendly centre. Additionally, the Halifax Regional Municipality has started converting municipal buildings to using natural gas in order to save more energy. Buildings using this type of energy are Dartmouth Sportsplex, Canada Games Centre, BMO Centre, Halifax Metro Centre, and Cole Harbour Place Recreation Centre.

Halifax has a great number of government and municipal centres established in its perimeter, making this sector one of the leading employment forces of the town. Its economic power comes mainly from agriculture, fishing, mining, forestry and natural gas extraction that are found in the more rural areas.

The ocean proximity brings an oceanic climate with warm summers and mild winters. There are no huge temperature spikes during the seasons, so the weather remains relatively pleasant throughout the year, bringing more and more people in search of their new home to Halifax. The only exception in the pleasant weather is the high precipitation that might cause freezing rain and snowfalls during colder winters.

Local Scoop

Even though residents are busy during the week, they still want to enjoy their free time in nature, and Halifax has an abundance of it. It’s home to over 1,000 lakes, more than 20 rivers, and 23 major coastal shorelines, so there are always places for recreation, and fish and watching wildlife habitats in Halifax.

The best way to explore Halifax is by walking along its coastline. Residents usually start off with the four-kilometre walk on Harbourwalk where century-old Victorian-era buildings are located along the line. You can also taste some of the tasty local cuisines in the popular dining spots, or take a boat tour to get familiar with the city. Animal lovers can enjoy whale watching tours every day, while history lovers can explore some pretty cool artefacts from the Titanic itself.

The Farmer’s market is another location that residents definitely recommend visiting. The colourful look, the smell of fresh flowers and friendly farmers will put a smile on your face that will last the whole day. After picking up some fresh flowers and crafts, you can hop in for a walk through the amazing Halifax Public Gardens, a popular spot for residents, visitors and especially couples.

And while you’re in the area, if you’re up for getting some new garments, Spring Garden is just a few blocks away. It’s the most popular shopping location in the area, with many famous Canadian brand stores and a fashionable crowd.

Thanks to the beautiful coastline, Halifax is one of the top cities in Canada when it comes to walkability. Most of its residents walk to work, especially if their job is in downtown Halifax because there aren’t many expressways leading to the centre. On the other hand, residents from rural areas rely more on car transportation to get around. But, towards the efforts of becoming an eco-friendly city, Halifax is developing a bicycle infrastructure that will help residents and tourists move around the city freely.
