Recreation programs may be delayed/cancelled tomorrow morning due to inclement weather

Monday, Mar. 27, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the majority of municipally-operated recreation facilities, including arenas, will delay opening Tuesday, Mar. 28, until 8:30 a.m. due to inclement weather.

The Halifax region is currently being affected by a winter storm, which is expected to result in up to 12 centimetres of snow and ice pellets followed by freezing rain. Due to anticipated poor conditions in the early morning hours, the majority of municipally-operated recreation facilities will delay opening until 8:30 a.m., which could result in program cancellations.

A further update on the status of recreation facilities and programming for Tuesday will be issued by 7 a.m.

Residents are encouraged to call ahead to their individual facility to confirm the status of their facility with respect to program delays or cancellations. A list of municipally-operated recreation facilities is available at

The municipality regrets any inconvenience this may cause. Please visit for the most up-to-date snow clearing service updates and the status of municipal services.
