Accessibility

We put people first. No matter what.   

The Halifax Convention Centre has been designed to ensure everyone can be welcomed into our spaces. Here’s how:

  • The building interior and exterior is wheelchair accessible, including automatic doors, wide curb cuts, washrooms and water fountains.
  • Every floor and common area is accessible via elevators, and include two-way communication in case of emergency.

  • Particular event spaces include permanent hearing assist systems, like Infrared Audio Assistive Listening Systems, and these can be temporarily included in every space as needed.
  • Tactile Braille signage is at the entrances of all meeting rooms and restrooms, as well as inside and outside all passenger elevators.

  • Certified guide, service and companion animals are always welcome (and we can help them enjoy their time with us too, like providing water and snacks if needed).
  • 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.

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.
