HALIFAX, Nova Scotia
An opening date has been set for the new trade and convention center in downtown Halifax, according to a memorandum of agreement between the city and the province. The complex is expected to open in January 2016.
The Halifax Regional Municipality is set to approve an agreement with the province that could see construction start on the new convention center, hotel and office tower later this year.
After months of delays the price of the $164 million project has increased by $5 million, but the federal government is covering the added cost.
