The Halifax Regional Municipality is the government for the largest municipality in Atlantic Canada, delivering programs and services to more than 414,398 residents across 200 communities and neighbourhoods. Halifax boasts the friendliness of a small town with the amenities, culture and opportunities of a modern urban centre. As home to some of the brightest minds and best educational institutions in the world, Halifax is forward thinking, resilient and resourceful, with a reputation as an energetic, caring community that embraces creativity and innovation.
The ocean and coastline of Halifax are a source of pride that shapes the identity of our city and our residents. A recent Geological Survey of Canada study states that the Atlantic Region has the greatest length of sensitive coast in Canada. As an organization we recognize the ecological, cultural, and economic impact of rising sea levels and coastal erosion on our communities and have invested time and resources to further study and mitigate these issues.
