The Climate and Weather of Halifax, Nova Scotia

Average Daily Maximum Temperature – Minimum – Sunshine – Raindays – Snowdays – Snowdepth – Windspeed

Halifax’s climate is less severe than might be expected.

This is a result of its location on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Winter temperatures are higher and summer temperatures are lower than those encountered in towns farther inland.

Halifax has an eastern-maritime climate, with a short, warm summer and a cold winter. Disturbed, changeable weather is common throughout the year.

Snow depths of greater than 1 cm are seen on about 85 days each year in Halifax.

Comparing Halifax with some other Canadian cities, snow depths of greater than 1 cm are seen on about:

10 days each year in Vancouver, 35 days in Penticton, 53 days each year in Windsor, 65 days in Toronto, 88 days in Calgary, 105 days each year in Fredericton, 109 days in Montreal, 120 days in Ottawa, and 132 days in Winnipeg.

Sunshine is somewhat less common in Halifax than in most Canadian cities owing to Nova Scotia’s notorious fogs. Halifax has over 100 days of mist or fog each year.

Summers in Halifax are pleasantly warm. The best summer weather is usually encountered in mid-summer and late summer when, compared with earlier in the season, fogs are rare.

Hi all,
I am having a chance to move canada and more precisely to Nova Soctia via Atlantic Pilot Program. We are a family of four people including 2 little girls.
I have heard that winters are extremely cold over there (NOT sure exactly). So I got some questions, if any local person can respond plz:

1) What is the lowest and highest temperature in NS exactly?

2 How is the education and health care system?

3) How’s the job market particularly for the IT sector?

Would it be wise decision to move NS or should I wait for any other state’s opportunity bcz I am a kind of person who don’t move and relocate frequently.

Thanks in advance

A breakdown of NS: winter dry , Harsh for walking through the wooded areas/ forest, when light is 12-12 its good for growing plants because of the closeness to the sun despite lack of blue and red to green light.
Spring: Heavy rainfall during early spring good for poppies sown in very early spring too get a head start, strong winds can occur at times.
Summer: strong wavelengths of light cause morning air to quickly heat up followed by strong southern air masses causing temperatures to rise ti high 20’s to mid 30’s (but don’t worry if its only 26 after June 23 trust me) good season for growing tall plants like cannabis & tomatoes& wild blueberries& trees.
Autumn: good for visitors who don’t do well in heat or snow, allergens such as shed skin/hair/ plant fibres are triggers. Bring your winter jacket in Mid October and a 1/2-2 pounds of body fat.

Hi everyone! I’m moving to Canada with my boyfriend next february, and Halifax is one of the cities we have in mind… generally we prefer smaller cities (but with a good cultural offer) and a milder weather, so we believe this could be a good choice… How is the winter in Halifax? 4 hours of sun light per day sounds a bit scary (we live in Barcelona)… Is it easy to find a job there during winter/spring time? Thanks a lot =)

From Barcelona to Halifax. Seriously?
The warmest place, but more expensive than everywhere in Canada is Vancouver. It’s beautiful city with a lot of opportunities for job. Before to move somewhere, just visit fist.
Good luck!

Halifax winter is pretty mild it is right on the Atlantic Ocean so the average temperature in January/February (the coldest Months) is like -2 or so and the summers are warmer an average temperature of 25. All year round there are always more than 4 hours of sunlight that only happens in like northern Canada. The sunsets around 6 pm around the winter solstice and 9:30 during the summer solstice. Halifax is definitely a smaller North American city with a little less than 500,000 people but has a great culture and more historic buildings in the city’s downtown than most other places in NA.

The east coast of Canada has some of the most extreme winter weather in Canada. If your looking for mild winter weather you should be looking at the west coast of Canada. Vancouver island or the Vancouver rural surrounding area.

I noted an American refugee. In my case, I settled in the Ottawa, Gatineau region. If you’re not a Florida or Arizona kind of person but more Seatle, San Fransico, then you will be used to the weather. Crime is way low in Halifax compared to the US. People very friendly. Maybe too friendly? There’s a lot of history. Early American history from a different perspective. You’ll also sense a bit more freedom and social responsibility. It’s a good place to live.

Been living in Nova Scotia all my life (40+) and it has the most variable weather of any place I have visited (Europe, Asia). Winters are damp and cold and spring really does not start until May and even into June the weather can be very variable. In the same 24h period, we can get a snow storm then the temp jumps to 6C with 20mm of rain and then freezes everything.

The summer is very short and can be wet. While we don’t get the bitter cold like Ottawa we also don’t get much in terms of hot weather. The best months IMO are August, Sept and Oct.


Also forget about using an umbrella when it rains, the noreasters will blow them to pieces. LOL

is it really raining as much as I read about it ? We are living in the GVA (Greater Vancouver Area) and have a lot of rain in the fall and winter.

The valley is always warmer…think wolfville…but chrster or bridgewater is also a little warmer too.

Moved to Halifax a few months ago. It definitely doesn’t have the “big city” vibe like Toronto or Montreal but there are plenty of activities happening all year around. Of course, it’s busier during the summer time but there’s stuff happening in the winter too. Being a smaller city, it sure has its fair share of traffic issues especially for those living in the nearby suburbs (in areas like Bedford and Fall River) and commuting to work daily. The area also has a growing start up scene and there are opportunities growing in the HRM.

Have been to Nova Scotia a few times and my wife and I are going to pull the trigger and move , have had enough of Alberta , we are wondering where in the province gets the less amount of snow , i know they get a lot there and we are ok with it but if we can live kinda where they get the lest that would be the best , we dont want to be in Halifax as we are both not city people , dont mind working there but dont want to live in the city

Fog really isn’t a issue. Maybe eastern passage.

Hello, the wife and I have been contemplating on moving to Nova Scotia as we love it there and land is more affordable than BC. Weve been pretty well everywhere in NS except the Southern part – both times in the summer (August).

But.. I read in a few places that NS gets a lot of fog. Which changes a lot of things.. which areas get more fog?

I lived there for 7 years. Don’t remember fog being an issue and I lived in the north shore, Truro, and Halifax. We’re moving back this summer after a decade in Bc. Cold yes. Fog, I don’t think so, no more than usual, except right on the water some days.

Hello,
I just finish nursing school in Toronto and is considering to move to Halifax for work. I’m a bit worried about the winters and life style considering moving from Toronto. What is rent, food, transportation like, do I need a car or is public transportation good?
Thanks,
Maggie

The winters here are much more mild than in Toronto. We dont get the extreme temperatures because we’re on the coast. If you live and work in the city you won’t need a car. If you live outside you might want one. Rent is pretty cheap, especially compared to Toronto! And the food here is pretty diverse, I like it.

Average temps in Halifax during the winter are a little warmer than Toronto. There is quite a big difference in snowfall in Halifax versus inland or to the north, systems tend to rain in Halifax while there is more snow in the Annapolis Valley, Amherst Parrsboro, new Glasgow, Antigonidh. A little like Vancouver but up to 5 degrees cooler which can dip into the snow range more often. Driest months tend to be May and June, then the hurricane season pumps precipitation up from the Gulf of Mexico more often. Precipitation can be up to 60 inches rain equiv. for the year, but it is dispensed more evenly over the year. Extended sunny periods can occur when the Bermuda High enlarges to include the Maritime as the California high does for southern BC. Not as often or for as long but, lately, more often. Typically, there are three, four or five nice or nicish days and I then a day or a half of rain… we are going much less likely to have any stretch of protracted forest fire smoke. The population of metro Halifax is now over 430,000 and it is growing fast. It’s a perfect place for a city. Rocky, shield-
Like hilly terrain in the immediate area and to the southwest and eastern shore transitioning to farm land and a rolling New England. Lots of fresh water and fresh air, only occasionally impacted at all by air from New England or Toronto. In short, the best kept secret since Vancouver.

Hi,
We are a couple planning to move to Halifax after living in Montreal for around 8 years. The only reason is a big job opportunity that came along and hence the purely career-based decision. We are however a bit uncertain about the “downgrading” from the metro lifestyle of Montreal and hence would like to inquire if it will be a drastic difference? We are a young couple, like to live active lifestyle and are very social. Any suggestions/ recommendations would be highly appreciated. Thanks

I’ve been to both Montreal and Halifax. For its size, Halifax has a lot going on. It’s not like Montreal which is probably the most happening city in Canada in my opinion, but you can definitely find a lot of events to do in Halifax, and it’s definitely a modern city with a twist. I don’t think you’re going to have any issues.

is Nov 1 too late for fall foliage in Halifax?

That’s actually a perfect time. Our fall foliage tends to be best towards the end of October beginning of November.

Right around the Thanksgiving weekend in October.

How common is it to have power outages? And in what seasons? What about internet outages (if those exist at all outside of power outages)?

Where are the best places to look for hobby farms in Nova Scotia, and since we will be trying to immigrate from the US, is it required that you live in the province in which you work?

Annapolis Valley, along the Valley floor North of the Annapolis River.

When is the best time to see fall colors in the area?Is October too late?

Город Галифакс: климат, недвижимость и общая информация

23 сентября 2020, 11:10

Галифакс – столица Новой Шотландии , город, расположенный на берегу одноимённой гавани в южной части провинции. Полуостров, на котором разместился город, достигает 7,2 км в длину и 3,2 км в ширину и делит залив на внутреннюю (Бедфорд) и внешнюю часть. Официально город был зарегистрирован в 1842 году. Население Галифакса на 2014 год составляло 414,129.

История города Галифакс

Первооткрывателем местности был французский путешественник Самюэль де Шамплен , посетивший полуостров в 1605 году. В начале 18 века здесь располагалась французская рыболовная база. А заселение территории британцами началось только в 1749 году, когда Эдвард Корнуоллис основал на этом месте город, как противовес Луисбургу, французской крепости в Кейп-Бретоне. Своё название город получил в честь второго графа Галифакса Джорджа Монтагу Данка, президента Совета по торговле и плантациям.

Долгое время Галифакс был одной из наиболее укрепленных военно-морских баз Великобритании за пределами Европы. Но в 1906 году Канадское правительство захватило городской причал и укрепления, тем самым получив власть над Галифаксом.

Хотя город никогда не был в осаждении, он сильно пострадал от разрушительного взрыва корабля с боеприпасами в 1917 году, в результате которого погибло почти 2000 человек, а северная часть города была опустошена.


В годы Первой и Второй мировой войны Галифакс был самой большой и самой важной военно-морской базой Канады.

Город – ведущий коммерческий и индустриальный центр Новой Шотландии. Не замерзающая зимой гавань является одной из самых загруженных в Канаде. Отсюда экспортируют рыбу, пиломатериалы и сельскохозяйственную продукцию.

В Галифакс ведут два главных железнодорожных пути. С другими частями провинции его связывают автострады, а к Дартмуту, который находится на противоположном берегу гавани, можно добраться паромом или через подвесные мосты Ангуса Л. Макдональда и А. Мюррея Маккея. Международный аэропорт расположен в 32 км на северо-восток.

Среди развитых отраслей промышленности выделяются литейная индустрия, нефтепереработка, судостроение, переработка рыбы и производство автомобилей, продуктов питания, верёвок и пряжи, лакокрасочной продукции, одежды и мебели.

Климат Галифакса

Климат в Галифаксе не настолько ужасен, как принято. Тем не менее летний период достаточно короткий, а зима долгая и довольно холодная. По статистике, уровень снега больше 1см держится около 90 дней.

Средняя температура в Галифаксе по месяцам:

Месяц Средняя температура Дожди (количество дней)
Январь -9° 8
Февраль -8° 6
Март -4° 10
Апрель 13
Май 14
Июнь 11°/19° 13
Июль 14°/23° 13
Август 15° / 23° 10
Сентябрь 11° / 19° 11
Октябрь 6° / 13° 13
Ноябрь 1° / 8° 14
Декабрь -5° / 3° 11

Галифакс сегодня

Как самый большой город в морских провинциях , Галифакс также является важным культурным центром. К известным местным учебным заведениям можно отнести Университет Далхаузи (основанный в 1818 году), англиканский Университет Королевского колледжа (1789 г.), римско-католические Университет Святой Марии (1841 г.) и женский Университет св. Винсента (1925 г.), а также Технический университет Новой Шотландии (1907 г.).

В Музее Новой Шотландии представлены выставки на историческую, географическую и морскую тематику.

В городе также можно увидеть множество исторических зданий. Церковь Святого Павла, построенная в 1750 году, является старейшей протестантской церковью в Канаде, а Старая голландская церковь (1756 г.) – первой лютеранской. Дом правительства – официальная резиденция лейтенанта-губернатора – был построен в 1800-1805 годах, а Дом провинции носит звание старейшего здания парламента в Канаде и является ярким примером грузинской архитектуры.

Мемориальная башня посвящена первому канадскому выборному собранию в 1758 году. Также известны среди туристов здания набережной, восстановленные в своём оригинальном виде 19-го века.

Военное прошлое города отражают башня Мартелло и Йоркская крепость – укрепление на вершине холма, построенное в 1828-50 годах на месте более ранних редутов. Сегодня там находится национальный исторический парк.

Стоимость недвижимости в Галифаксе

Из-за своего не самого большого населения, цены на недвижимость порадуют любого среднего Канадца. В 2020 году средняя цена за дом, согласно ресурсу Halifax Real Estate, составила всего $303,463 (для сравнение в Ванкувере и Торонто этот же показатель выше $1,000,000). Цены на недвижимость в Галифаксе растут очень медленно, так как регион не представляет большой ценности для инвесторов. Квартиры и вовсе можно найти в диапазоне около $150,000.

There we are for the first day in Halifax!

September, 28th 2020. Finally, the day all CSC1CAN team members were waiting for! Now we are all in NS Halifax Canada to start our CSC journey.

It was quite interesting to follow the team leaving the home countries in the same direction during the whole day. Some posts in social media and many texts, including some selfies, helped us to have some fun and share locations and connection flights of each other and, most importantly, helped DOT with the arriving logistics involving 16 IBMers from across the world. Despite some flights delays due to weather conditions in Halifax, everything went well and now it’s time for us to have some rest to get recovered from the long trips. Special thanks to Liesl Mulholland for taking care of us!

Now, we all have to get ready for tomorrow when the whole team will meet in person for the first time! Interesting and special moment coming very soon.

Since I arrived in Halifax early today, I could go for a walk to explore around the hotel a little bit. Usually, when I visit a place for the first time I need some time to get used to the neighborhood. I think the best thing for me to do is going around by foot, so I have a chance to look better at the buildings, houses and people passing by the street. In fact, the weather didn’t help much today, it is raining the whole day but not too bad, so I decided to go even with some showers. It was worth it and I could register this moment through some shots that I am sharing with you below. My first impression was very good, meaning a nice place to visit. Hoping for some more time to explore it better.

For the weekend, I already have a schedule ahead with the team where we’re supposed to do some activities together and have some fun as well. Monday we start working with our clients, full of excitement and challenges to overcome. Nevertheless, the whole team is with the same mindset of impacting Nova Scotia community by helping address some of today’s issues they are facing with our best.

As I mentioned in my first CSC post, we are going to partner with four clients, each one working with a specific sub-team on the associated project described in the form of SoW (Statement of Work), as outlined below.

If you’re interested, you can visit client’s websites for more details at IORE, NSCC, ISANS and NS.

We are all fortunate to have such great projects and clients! And yes, we all have complex problems to address in a short time which requires focus, teamwork and partnership from the whole team.

I’m assigned to sub-team 2 with three other teammates. We are going to work with Nova Scotia Community College or NSCC team on an agenda of education inclusion for people with disability. I’ve learned that accessibility by nature is a complex and broad subject. That brings my sub-team with the first challenge which is to work with NSCC team to define and agree to a SoW which is clear in the objective and deliverables, feasible and also is linked to NSCC business context. That’s the first step to pursue for us to succeed, and I am confident on that.

I don’t know why I was selected to this sub-team and client. Anyways, I’m always personally interested in the agenda of inclusion since I believe we must ensure a world where opportunities are equal to all, no matter the condition (physical or intellectual), race, gender, beliefs or any other characteristic an individual presents. I think that can be possible only if the barriers faced by individuals with different condition(s) are recognized and managed accordingly. Main objective here is to remove or at least minimize the barriers, allowing those individuals access to whatever they need to develop the capabilities required for them to participate in social and economic activities in the same condition as others with “normal” condition. No doubt, that’s a right of all human being!

At this moment all I can tell you I have been studying a lot since I was informed about the project. It’s an incredible opportunity for me to learn, share and, most importantly, evolve as a person whose dream is to contribute somehow for a better world, in this case more tolerant and fair. However, it will demand much more research and hard work of my team to embrace this challenge and bring the best each one has to our client NSCC, regarding references, best practices, use cases, innovation, technology and so on.

Having said that, that could not be better and you cannot imagine how proud and motivated I am with this assignment. I’d like to thank the team from IBM Corporate Services, DOT, clients and for the Halifax community for having us and making this real. Counting on your partnership to make this happen.

To finalize this post, I would like to say that I consider all this as a gift and I feel thankful!

Things to do from the Halifax NS Canada cruise port? — Halifax Forum

    Browse forums
  • All

Hello, I will ask the same question about Halifax NS Canada and the other ports of call on our cruise in late Sept 2012. What inexpensive things are there to do in Halifax and the following ports we are visiting: Newport RI, Boston MA, Bar Harbor ME, Saint John NB Canada, Halifax NS Canada, Quebec City QC Canada ? We like to walk wherever we can from the ship (if possible) & we prefer to go to parks, nice sandy beaches, or just see sights on foot. Wherever we go at ports, we like to be safe and avoid potentially dangerous areas. If we can’t get any place by walking, then we could take an inexpensive taxi or bus ride to get to free or inexpensive places of interest. Any suggestions you might have & comments on the individual port is greatly appreciated! Thank You for your help!

Halifax has just what you want. You can exit the ship and walk all along the waterfront. There are shops and restaurants, the Maritime Museum and the Pier 21 Museum. You can also walk up to the top of Citadel Hill (quite a climb so if you wish take a taxi). You can walk through the Public Gardens and down Spring Garden Road. You can also walk around Point Pleasant Park.

Thank you maryann-ns ! I am sure we will have a great time there when we dock in the next couple of weeks. Thanks again for your help!

I hope you have a great time. Let us know what you did if you can.

I can help a bit with your other ports of call-

Saint John: The Loyalist house is inexpensive and interesting http://loyalisthouse.com/ I also recommend the Loyalist cemetery which has been turned into a lovely park. Wander the historic area and pop into the Old General Store. Saint John is a friendly city, no worries about safety, really.

Boston: Once again, wander the historic downtown. Follow the red brick Freedom trail that’s on the sidewalks, it’ll take you everywhere you’re likely to want to go. The Paul Revere house is a reasonable price.

Newport: Not likely to find anything cheap in that city. But, if you’re willing to splurge a bit, visit any one of the Newport Mansions. They’re beautiful. http://www.newportmansions.org/ There is a shopping district near America’s Cup avenue that may be worth a look. the Cliff Walk is nice, if you really just want to walk.
