Halifax Regional Municipality, NS – Heritage Tourism Strategy – 545KB (2001)

In 1996, the Halifax Regional Municipality began a process of review and consolidation of heritage and cultural services. In 1998, the mandate of the Halifax Regional Tourism Department was expanded to include heritage and culture. In 1999, staff were brought together from planning and museum branches and tasked to meet with the community to develop a heritage strategy that met three goals: to improve public efficiency, reduce dependency on the municipality and to enhance sustainable opportunities. The HRM Heritage Tourism Strategy was developed in 2001 to address these goals.
