We are committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for our guests.

We take many other measures, big and small, to make sure everyone feels comfortable in our facility. And our team can help you plan for every consideration.

GENERAL ACCESSIBILITY The public sidewalks serving the Halifax Convention Centre feature curb cuts for wheelchair access. Automatic doors are located at the Argyle and Grafton Street entrances to the facility. Drinking fountains and restrooms throughout the building are wheelchair accessible and each level has one private universal washroom.

ELEVATORS Passenger elevators are located inside the Halifax Convention Centre and provide access to all common areas of the building. Elevators are alarm-equipped with two-way communications to the Halifax Convention Centre Security Operations Centre and have accessible tactile Braille call buttons, both inside and outside.

HEARING ASSIST SYSTEMS Infrared Audio Assistive Listening Systems are permanently installed in the Convention Hall and Ballroom event spaces, and are temporarily available for meeting rooms and public spaces. Contact your event manager if you have guests who will require the use of these systems, as pre-planning is required.
