Media Room

Welcome to the Media Room! The following information is intended to help journalists and others find out what's going on in the Halifax region and who they can talk to about it.

Media Relations Protocol

All media requests are to be directed to Public Affairs. Click on the links to the right to access recent and archived media releases, advisories and public service announcements related to:

• Municipal initiatives and programs
• Newsworthy events
• Notifications that affect residents


The Public Affairs team responds to media inquiries during regular hours of operation: Monday to Friday, 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.

After Hours Media Requests

The Halifax Regional Municipality only extends after-hours service to media inquiries deemed by Public Affairs to be of an urgent, operational nature. Other inquiries will be addressed during regular business hours.

Response Time

Please note that media requests from accredited media (representatives of a recognized media organization) are given priority.

Media requests by non-accredited media and journalism students will be logged and dealt with in sequence. Please note that while Public Affairs will make every effort to accommodate non-accredited requests, delays in responding may occur.
