Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia. It is the largest city in Atlantic Canada, and the economic hub of the maritime provinces.
The Regional Municipal Planning Strategy (2014) states that one of its objectives is to: “Design complete streets for all ages, abilities, and modes of travel” (p.59).
At the Complete Streets Forum in 2014, Ali Shaver, Planning Facilitator, Capital District Health Authority, gave a presentation describing the collaborative process undertaken to achieve this level of support.
A number of street improvement projects undertaken by the city make reference to Complete Street principles (for example, Devonshire Ave), but as of yet, no comprehensive Complete Streets policy has been set in place.
