Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia and the largest city in the Atlantic Provinces of Canada. Halifax was the entry point for European immigration to Canada.
Halifax is the provincial and regional hub of Nova Scotia. It is still, however, a smaller city by North American standards. Rather than feeling relegated to 'second-fiddle' status, this dichotomy is celebrated by residents who take pride in their slower pace and warm hospitality.
