A strategy to grow the economy of our city and region

Who's involved

GREATER HALIFAX PARTNERSHIP

The Greater Halifax Partnership, a public-private partnership that represents the views of the private and public sector, is the lead on many of the actions identified in the Strategy. The Partnership will also be the coordinating body for support to the Action Teams, Economic Strategy Implementation Steering Committee and the Mayor’s Economic Advisory Committee. The Partnership will also track and monitor progress against objectives.

HALIFAX REGIONAL COUNCIL & THE COMMUNITY PLANNING AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STANDING COMMITTEE

The Mayor and members of Halifax Regional Council and the Community Planning and Economic Development Standing Committee, having endorsed the plan, will ensure ongoing alignment to HRM’s programs and priorities.

ECONOMIC STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION STEERING COMMITTEE

The Economic Strategy Steering Committee will provide oversight and strategic guidance on the ongoing implementation of the Strategy and ensure a focused, coordinated, aligned approach and engagement with partners.

MAYOR’S ECONOMIC ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The Mayor’s Economic Advisory Committee will provide strategic advice on the issues, challenges and opportunities that impact the successful implementation of the Strategy.

GOAL ACTION TEAMS

Five Action Teams for each of the goal areas will be established to ensure agreement and alignment on the objectives to be achieved, the resource commitments to be made, and measurement.

PRIVATE, PUBLIC, POST-SECONDARY, NOT-FOR-PROFIT, VOLUNTARY AND LABOUR SECTORS

Representatives of each of these sectors have played an extensive role in the consultation and action planning stages of the Strategy development, having provided over 3,000 volunteer hours. Their role will continue to be essential during the implementation phase as active participants in the Action Teams.
