Population of Halifax

Halifax is currently Canada's second-fastest growing city.  The metro area population of Halifax grew to approximately 423,000 over the past couple of years, with the population of Nova Scotia just over a million people. As the capital city of Nova Scotia, Halifax is also the largest city in Atlantic Canada. You know why you've made the decision to live here - Susan will help you find a home to live in.

The covid-19 pandemic suddenly put Halifax, and Nova Scotia as a whole, on the map as a desirable place to live. This drove people from across the country to choose to move to Nova Scotia. This influx, on top of already strong immigration numbers, and a reluctance for many to sell during a pandemic, caused a lack of inventory and it became a hot Seller's market beginning in mid-2020 and continuing into 2024. 

With this lack of inventory, and the increase in population, those who might be planning to sell are waiting to see what happens. There are fewer affordable places to rent, keeping people in their homes longer than pre-covid. With this lack of available homes, the average price of a home in Halifax has shot up to approximately $464,000.
