There’s something special about Halifax. We’re quaint but dynamic, bold yet refined, beautiful and understated. A little sweet and a little salty.

Our reputation precedes us. It’s engrained in our culture — even the volunteers at our airport are known for it. It’s the people, your businesses, our communities. That’s what makes Halifax special. It’s what separates us from the rest of the world.

And when the world seemingly shut down, the people and businesses of Halifax rose to the occasion. It’s been gritty and challenging to say the least, but you’ve shown up with integrity and courage to make Halifax a safe and hopeful place to do business, all while highlighting what’s needed for a better way forward.  

Like so many of you, we took the opportunity to re-evaluate our plans and now starting to see them unfold. As an integral part of the air transportation supply chain and the larger travel ecosystem, we’re working to safely return Halifax Stanfield to previous business activity levels and reestablish sustainable growth.

We’re focused on recovery, but we’re also looking forward to address ongoing challenges. We’re streamlining processes, filling labour shortages, getting new destinations, ensuring there’s enough demand, attracting people to Halifax, and connecting with our community.

By working together, we can better understand where we can make the greatest impact. Our airport contributes to the vibrancy and accelerates the growth of our region in myriad ways. From welcoming newcomers, to investing in infrastructure that allows for more imports and exports or increasing non-stop flights that save you time and money. We’re inspired and want to create Canada’s best gateway airport for you.

When you put all the pieces together, it’s no wonder Halifax has so much to offer. Despite recent challenges, we’re more motivated than ever to improve and grow. The world better watch out.

Joyce Carter will be speaking to Chamber members on Wednesday, November 9, 2022. Find more information at:
