About Halifax:

With a population of over 400,000 people, Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia and the educational, cultural and economic hub of Atlantic Canada. Often referred to as Canada’s “best-kept secret,” Halifax boasts a youthful spirit, rich history and scenic waterfront.  

In the downtown core, you’ll find art galleries, museums, theatres, festivals, sport events, lively pubs, quaint cafés and, of course, friendly Haligonians. There’s also lots of interesting shops, restaurants and historic buildings to see along the world’s longest harbourfront boardwalk.

Halifax’s urban charm is complemented by its natural beauty, which includes rugged shorelines, colourful gardens, hiking trails and scenic parks.
