The Halifax Regional Municipality is inviting residents to review the proposed district boundaries as part of the 2022 District Boundary Review process.
The District Boundary Review process will review the number of councillors and the boundaries for each polling district. Changes made from the Review’s recommendations will be in place for the 2024 municipal election.
The process consists of two phases:
- Phase 1, which determined the size of Council and its governance structure; and,
- Phase 2, which set specific district boundaries.
The Phase 1 report was approved by Regional Council’s Executive Committee on May 30, 2022, and the Phase 2 What We Heard report and proposed district boundaries maps are now available on halifax.ca/boundaryreview.
- Attending meetings of the District Boundary Resident Review Panel (see here);
- Attending meetings of the Executive Standing Committee (see here); or
- Sending written submissions to the Municipal Clerks Office by email at email@example.com, by mail at Municipal Clerks Office, PO Box 1749, Halifax NS, B3J 3A5, or by phone at 902-490-4210.
The distribution of polling districts must satisfy the objectives set in the Municipal Government Act, including the minimum number of electors, relative parity of voting power, population density, communities of interest, and geographic size.
The Executive Standing Committee will advance recommended map options to Regional Council in early December, and final recommendations will be submitted to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board for review.
