We believe taking action on climate starts in our cities.
Our HRM Alliance is a coalition of over 60 organizations from environment, business, health and community sectors advocating for a sustainable future in Halifax Regional Municipality.
Between 1992 and 2014, Halifax nearly doubled in size, while our population only increased by 1/5th. This style of growth raises our tax burden, takes over wildlife habitat, and is unsustainable as we face an urgent need to mitigate and prepare for climate change.
Through greenbelting and complete communities we can protect the places that matter while building more livable, climate-friendly communities.
In building complete communities, we make our neighborhoods more livable by prioritizing access to essential community services, affordable and accessible housing, transportation and recreation options. Building complete communities requires prioritizing our growth around main streets and growth centres.
We are over 60 organizations from across Halifax Regional Municipality uniting to advocate for a sustainable city.
We come together as a coalition to advise council, engage in policy and planning, and advocate for our members.
