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 are level with the roadway separated by a tactile attention indicator (TAI) providing flexible access. Automatic doors are located at the Argyle and Grafton Street entrances. Washrooms throughout the building are fully accessible and each level has one private universal washroom, except for the Ballroom level, which features both a private universal washroom and one full-sized universal washroom.

ELEVATORS Passenger elevators are located inside the Halifax Convention Centre and provide access to all public areas of the building. Elevators are alarm-equipped with two-way communications to the Halifax Convention Centre Security Operations Centre. The elevators have audible floor notification, and the call buttons have both raised characters and braille.

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.

PARKING The Halifax Convention Centre is conveniently located via elevator from the Nova Centre underground public parking garage. Pay stations with tap are located on the parking levels.

SERVICE AND SUPPORT ANIMALS Halifax Convention Centre is dedicated to fostering an environment that promotes accessibility and inclusivity, ensuring a positive experience for all attendees within our facility. We are committed to accommodating the needs of individuals who rely on service animals, as well as accommodating, to the extent possible, individuals who rely on support animals. See your Event Manager for more detailed information.

STAGE ACCESSIBILITY Please speak with your Event Manager regarding options to accommodate speakers or guests who may have accessibility needs.
