About Halifax

Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, is known as Canada’s Ocean Playground. With the ocean easily in view, it’s no wonder seafood is one of the great things you’ll have no problem finding. Lobster, digby scallops and Atlantic salmon are just a few of the ocean’s gems you can find on their restaurant menus.

Halifax, technically a regional municipality, was founded in 1749. Shortly after, the Old Town Clock was built in 1803 and is still keeping time for the Bluenosers (Nova Scotians).

With the cost of rent skyrocketing around the globe, we think Halifax has the best rent deal out there.  Halifax rents Point Pleasant Park, a 77 hectare park located on the southern tip of the Halifax Peninsula, from the British government for 10 cents a year. And they have a 999 year lease. Talk about a steal!Where can you go to see Gunners dress in the 3rd Brigade Royal Artillery uniform of 1869 and fire a cannon every day at noon? The Halifax Citadel Historical Site. Thirsty? Take your pick of the many breweries Halifax has to offer (there are more brew pubs per capita then anywhere else in Canada). Hungry? Grab yourself a Donair. You won’t be disappointed. We hope to see you in this maritime province soon.
