What to expect when renting in Halifax
From naming the new harbour ferry to ridesharing (as well as a dedicated email hotline for new residents), renting a home in Halifax means living in a multicultural community rich in diversity and charm.
With this kind of community spirit, you’d be best to make nice with your Haligonian neighbours. Quiet hours in Halifax are from 9:30pm to 7am on weekdays, and it's always a good idea to introduce yourself to neighbours and let them know if you're planning a party, especially with the extensive Neighbourhood Watch program here.
Expect good settlement services with the Halifax Regional Municipality website, which can help with all kinds of information from registering a pet to residential parking permits. Crime rates have gone down recently, and the city makes it easy for tenants in Halifax to check out the crimes in their neighbourhoods.
Haligonians are serious about their composting and recycling. Once you find your apartment in Halifax, you might at first be a little befuddled by the use of blue bags, green carts, black sacs, and more when it comes to garbage disposal. For newbies, there’s the What Goes Where guide and information for new residents.
