Members and Partners

There Are
Alliance member Groups

Alliance members are all organizations. They come from every corner of the municipality – rural, suburban, and the urban core.  They include business, health, environmental, community, trails groups, as well as advocacy organizations focused on transportation, tax reform, land use planning and resource management. The membership is extremely diverse and growing. Every one is committed to a more sustainable and prosperous Halifax.
