Halifax population growth, “spectacular”                

The Halifax Partnership is touting a report saying the city’s population soared between 2015 and 2016.

Halifax’s economic development agency is touting the city’s off-the-charts population growth in 2016, thanks mostly to a surge of international immigrants. The mini population boom saw more than 8,000 new residents in the city, with the total population climbing to 426,000, from July 2015 to July 2016.

The population increase is the highlight of this year’s Halifax Index, an annual overview of the state of Nova Scotia’s capital city presented Wednesday by the Halifax Partnership.
Ian Munro, the partnership’s chief economist, called the population growth — which beat out the national average — “spectacular.”
