What do I need to know about staying in Halifax?

With a strong population of over 400,000 residents, Halifax has grown considerably since it was first established as a town in 1749 (named after the second Earl of Halifax). Its coastal location meant the area was naturally considered for its fishing, an area in which it still excels to this day.

Transport

Halifax is easy to reach by air thanks to the nearby Halifax Stanfield International Airport; similarly the city serves as a major harbour, with a public ferry service connecting to other Canadian ports. Public transport is provided by Halifax Transit, which runs the ferry service as well as the standard and regional express bus routes.

Weather

Due to its northern, coastal location, Halifax has a cold climate, with temperatures rarely pushing beyond 20 degrees Celsius in the height of summer (July and August). Winters are especially cold, with cold air and a reduction of sunshine hours resulting in temperatures as low as -6 degrees. Rain is year round, meaning good cold and wet weather clothing is essential during your stay.

What else is Halifax known for?

Tourism

Halifax has many popular tourist features and attractions, with its famous coastline and often breath-taking scenery. The nearby Peggys Cove is an idyllic fishing village with a picturesque coast and lighthouse, whereas the Halifax Maritime Museum of the Atlantic houses multiple seagoing vessels and an extensive exhibit regarding the Titanic. The Halifax waterfront is also popular, as it offers a Halifax Harbourwalk which is frequented by visitors and locals.

Economy

As a major financial hub in the Maritime region, Halifax has a strong economy which employs many in the Department of National Defence, the city’s port and Irving Shipbuilding. In the rural surroundings, the economy is reliant on agricultural, fishing, mining and forestry, with gas extraction also playing an important role.
