Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, is the most dynamic business hub in Atlantic Canada. It consistently ranks as a top location to do business in North America. Halifax is a major North American centre for marine, air, rail, trucking and logistics – capable of delivering products and services around the world. This strategic advantage combined with low business costs, a highly educated workforce, compelling incentives, and thriving business sectors means Halifax provides all of the right ingredients for business success.
The city’s strong economy is supporting major projects and developments including the 30-year $30Billion Halifax Shipbuilding project, $1B Shell offshore exploration project and $1B BP offshore exploration project.
Halifax is also Canada’s Ocean City so it’s no surprise we are a world leader in the oceans sector with we have a strategic location on North America’s east coast, and a strong focus in Oceans education at our universities and community colleges, and a depth to our science –based workforce. Our Oceans sector includes providers engaged in oceans technology, fisheries and aquaculture, life sciences, shipbuilding, and ocean observation, as well as marine-centric defence and security, transportation, life sciences and energy.
The Halifax Partnership is the lead economic development organization for the City. It brings together industry, post-secondary and community partners, as well as all three levels of government, to create and nurture the relationships needed for business development.
