halifax_cityWith a population of over 400,000, Halifax is the capital city of the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. It is a major economic centre in Eastern Canada, with a large concentration of government services and private sector companies. Major employers and economic generators include the Department of National Defence, Dalhousie University, the Halifax Shipyard, various levels of government, and the Port of Halifax. Agriculture, fishing, mining, forestry, and natural gas extraction are major resource industries found in the rural areas of the municipality. The urban centre has seen an upturn in development over recent years, in part due to the international recognition garnered by the award-winning Halifax Central Library in the heart of the downtown.
