Halifax, Nova Scotia’s capital, is a modern port city teeming with culture and heritage. Founded in 1749, Halifax was the site of the first British town in Canada. Halifax is Atlantic Canada’s largest city and is the economic and cultural hub of Eastern Canada. It is a small city by North American standards (2010 pop. 412,012). In the 19th and early 20th century, Halifax was a key entry point for European immigration to Canada. One of the world’s great natural harbours, Halifax has a rich maritime history and has been home to Canada’s East Coast Navy for over 100 years. Fairview Cemetery in Halifax is the final resting place for over one hundred victims of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, more than any other cemetery in the world.
In downtown Halifax you’ll find 17th and 18th century architecture, art galleries, an impressive array of entertainment, attractions, fine restaurants and lively nightlife, and notably, the most pubs per capita in all of North America. The greater Halifax region boasts sandy beaches, rugged shorelines and colourful gardens. Halifax combines the international essence of a major port city and naval base, with the youthful vibe of a university town, and the culture and heritage of one of Canada’s most historic communities. The historic town of Lunenburg which has been designated by the Government of Canada as a place of National Historic Significance is a 1 hour drive from Halifax. Charlottetown, Canada’s birthplace, is a 3 hour drive from Halifax.
