About Halifax, NS

Halifax is the largest city in Nova Scotia and is known for its history, culture, and natural beauty. In 1749, Halifax was simply considered a military base and settlement. Since then, Halifax has become Nova Scotia’s capital and most populous city. With around 316,000 residents, Nova Scotia creates the exciting feel of living in a big city without the hassle of major metropolitan areas. From exploring rich history to checking out some amazing architecture, you can get the best of both worlds in Halifax!

Halifax offers residents a wide variety of Nova Scotia real estate. Halifax homes for sale vary in size and price, but the average cost falls around $440,000. Most Nova Scotian communities offer a selection of houses, townhouses, and apartments. The city also has some oceanfront properties that are popular with permanent Nova Scotia residents and vacationers who visit Halifax throughout the year. With Halifax on the rise economically and from a population perspective, there is a good bit of revitalization happening in many city areas. More restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions are popping up each day, making this an exciting time to move to Halifax.

Some attractions that are already well-loved by the friendly Halifax community include Point Pleasant Park, a 940-acre green space that offers walking and biking trails. The Halifax Public Gardens, Nova Scotia’s oldest public garden, is a botanical garden incorporated in 1867 and now has four pavilions and an amphitheatre. Nova Scotia’s art scene also thrives in Halifax. Nova Scotian artists and Nova Scotia galleries will often be found at the Nova Scotia Art Gallery, a collection that includes more than 2,000 pieces of art. The Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market is Nova Scotia’s oldest continuously running farmers’ market, and it offers fresh Nova Scotian produce including berries, fruit, seafood, and meats. Nova Scotia’s capital is a great destination for Nova Scotian residents and tourists alike, with plenty to do year-round. 


The economy in Halifax is driven by Nova Scotia’s biggest employers including Nova Scotia Power (NSP), Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) and Cisco Systems Canada Ltd. Other Nova Scotian companies that offer employment in Halifax include Emera Inc., Maritime Electric, Sobeys Inc., and WestJet Airlines. Halifax is also home to many universities, including Dalhousie University, which started operating in 1818 with just one student. The Nova Scotia College of Art & Design opened its doors in 1887 as Canada’s first art school outside Quebec City. Today, there are over 11 universities located within Halifax’s boundaries making it one of Canada’s most educated cities, with an 88% education rate. That’s higher than both the Nova Scotia and Canadian averages!

Halifax Transportation

Halifax locals can enjoy the convenience of living in a big city without many of the problems that come with major metropolitan areas. Transportation is no exception! Due to its small size, you can walk or bike nearly everywhere in the city. There may be some errands here and there that you’ll need to drive for, depending on where your home is located, but Halifax is an easily walkable city. On par with several Nova Scotia cities, Halifax has plenty of green spaces and trails to bike through if that’s your preferred method. Nova Scotia has invested a lot into bettering these transportation options and increasing frequency on routes. This has caused an increase in the number of locals who use the MetroX line running from downtown Halifax to Bedford Place Mall. If you need to fly in and out of the city, Halifax Stanfield International Airport will ensure that you get where you need to go. No matter your favourite mode of transportation, Halifax has got it!

  3. Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
    • If you’re interested in Canadian history, Nova Scotia’s Pier 21 is a must-see destination. Established by the Canadian government in 1928, this port was Nova Scotia’s busiest immigration facility, as more than one million immigrants arrived here during the 20th century. Today, visitors to Nova Scotia’s Pier 21 can see artifacts used when Nova Scotians first arrived at the Halifax harbour, and they can also explore Nova Scotia’s immigration history.
  4. Halifax Citadel National Historic Site
    • Nova Scotian history buffs will be sure to enjoy the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. This Nova Scotian historic military landmark served as a defensive fortification for Nova Scotia during the 19th century. Today, visitors can tour this fortress where Nova Scotians used to protect their country by watching over Halifax Harbour’s entrance.
  5. Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

You can learn about Nova Scotia’s rich fishing history and its contributions to Canadian shipping here. Nova Scotia was once a leader in North American fishing! Although it initially opened as a warehouse in 1849, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is Nova Scotia’s official maritime museum today.
  6. Halifax Harbour Ferry
    • If Nova Scotia’s coastline is one of your favourite spots, the Halifax Harbour Ferry service will be your paradise. Halifax locals can hop aboard this scenic ferry and enjoy Nova Scotia’s beautiful harbour from the water on a day trip. For those who prefer to ride along Nova Scotia’s coastline, Nova Scotia’s ferry route travels through the famous Peggy’s Cove, a fishing village located in Halifax. 
  7. Alexander Keith’s Brewery Tours
    • If Nova Scotian beer is your drink of choice, Alexander Keith’s Brewery Tours are a must-do attraction. Here, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at Nova Scotia’s first and oldest brewery, and you can find information about their brewing process, beer recipes, and brewing history.

If you want to have a true Nova Scotian maritime experience, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay are the places to be.
  2. Lawrencetown Beach
    • Lawrencetown Beach is Nova Scotia’s most eastern point. Located in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley, Lawrencetown Beach offers sunbathing and a picturesque ocean view. The sand here is white, soft, and stretches out for kilometres. You may even spot whales playing in the distance if you’re lucky! Nova Scotia’s wilderness is just a 40-minute drive away.
