On Canada’s east coast, Halifax is connected to the world

Halifax, Nova Scotia, is Atlantic Canada’s largest city and major hub. And it’s not as far away as you might think. It’s a two-hour flight from Toronto or New York, and about an hour from Boston.

Steeped in history and bursting with lively Maritime culture, Halifax is a joy to explore. You’ll love the variety of fresh food, shopping, music, and sights to take in. As a city of over 400,000, Halifax also has all the amenities and services you may require.

InteRACT is located in the heart of Halifax, on the beautiful Dalhousie University campus. Your therapy will take place in the Sir Charles Tupper Building, home of the Dalhousie University Medical School and just steps from the QEII Health Sciences Centre and the IWK Health Centre.
