Halifax Index



What is the Halifax Index?

The Halifax Index is a definitive look at Halifax's economic and community progress. It tells our city’s story – the strength of our economy, the health of our community, and the sustainability of our environment – and provides insights for actions that will strengthen and grow our city. 

The Halifax Index is the measurement tool for AGREATERHalifax, the 2011-16 Economic Strategy for Halifax, showing the city's progress in building vibrant communities, a competitive business environment, creating confidence and pride, and building a welcoming, inclusive and healthy environment.

The Index's sections reflect a wide-angled view of what economic and community progress looks like.  It primarily benchmarks Halifax’s progress against five other cities (St. John’s, Quebec City, London, Regina and Victoria), showing how Halifax’s growth compares to other cities across a range of key indicators and what's required to achieve better results.
