We make clean water accessible across the municipality and safely transfer it back to the source. We build and maintain infrastructure that supports the treatment, delivery and movement of water across the region.
For decades we have been focused on improving our operations so we can continue to manage our region’s water cycle in a financially and environmentally responsible manner. As a result of everyone’s hard work, we have grown into a world-class utility with an incredible story.
Halifax Water is a not-for-profit joint stock company with all of its shares deemed to be owned by the Halifax Regional Municipality.
