Corporate and Government Cooperation Fuels Business Growth in Halifax

Since 2016, Halifax has been the second-fastest-growing municipality in Canada. Collaboration between the provincial and municipal governments and business organizations, with the support of Halifax Partnership, has made the city a tech center in Canada, attracting international corporations and innovative new start-ups.

Despite the pandemic that began in 2020, Halifax has continued to grow, due in no small part to the ten different colleges and universities in the area. Every year skilled young graduates increase the incentives for start-ups and global corporations to expand to the city.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, there has been a radical shift from in-house employees to remote and freelance workers. Many young people who previously left the Maritime Provinces to find employment in cities with stronger economies have returned home, choosing to make Halifax their base and acting as a draw for many new and established businesses to expand.

Along with the opportunities that come with industry growth, the real-estate sector faces challenges as competition for affordable housing increases. Businesses need short-term housing solutions that both allow their relocating employees to continue working remotely while seeking permanent housing, and accommodate people traveling to Halifax for business.

Relocation supervisors and individuals may have difficulty finding the solutions to their housing needs on their own. Enter OBASA Six Three Suites. We connect clients with leading furnished accommodation solutions in Halifax and throughout North America.

Historically, Halifax, Nova Scotia, has been a hub for government jobs; with Halifax Harbour serving as the Atlantic home port for the Royal Canadian Navy, the Department of National Defense has been the single largest employer in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
