Neighbourhood profile - Halifax

Halifax is the heart of the towntown business district. It is situated on a peninsula accessed by two ferries, two bridges and a couple of key road arteries. Living on the peninsula offers an easy commute to work or one of the universities located on the peninsula - Saint Mary's University (SMU), Dalhousie University, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD), the Atlantic School of Theology, or Nova Scotia Community College's (NSCC) Institute of Technology (IT) campus.

Finding a home on the peninsula can be challenging due to inventory, and the prices tend to be among the highest in the market due to the convenient location but what a great location to be able to walk from home to downtown, enjoy green spaces, the waterfront, or the many restaurants!
