Digital Halifax Index Versions

In 2020, we transitioned the Halifax Index into a digital web-based format.

Getting from 2022 to 2023 in Halifax felt … intense. Growing pains felt particularly acute as well. However, we have yet to see any metrics that would signal the onset of a recession. In the grand scheme of things, Halifax appears happier in 2022 than it was in 2021. We can continue to feel optimistic about our future as we recognize our growing pains and find new and better ways of addressing them.

The transition from 2021 into 2022 feels like an especially significant turning point. While 2021 marked another long year under the shadow of the pandemic, mid-way into 2022 we seem to be emerging from COVID, although no one would yet say that we are in a post-COVID world. The 2021 to 2022 handover also marks the shift to a new five-year economic strategy for Halifax, that in many ways is a continuation of the last and builds on its success.

2020 was unlike anything any of us have seen or could have predicted. Coming into 2020, Halifax was in a strong position, making progress towards Halifax’s long-term Economic Growth Plan vision. But like most of the world, COVID-19 significantly impacted many aspects of our economy and community. However, Halifax has shown continued resilience throughout this difficult year and there are signs that economic recovery is well underway.

Halifax lived through a tale of two years. In 2019 we saw strong economic growth, a growing population, and record business confidence. Labour force, employment, international student, and youth retention indicators were all very positive. We began 2020 with well-deserved optimism that it would be Halifax’s best year ever.
