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.

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.

PARKING The Halifax Convention Centre is conveniently located via elevator from the Nova Centre underground public parking garage.

RESTROOMS Our restrooms are fully accessible and have stalls, sinks and mirrors that are wheelchair accessible. Each level is also equipped with a private universal washroom.

SERVICE/COMPANION ANIMALS Certified guide/service/companion animals are always welcome at the Halifax Convention Centre.

SIGHT IMPAIRED INFORMATION Tactile Braille signage is at the entrances of all meeting rooms and restrooms, as well as inside and outside all passenger elevators.
