You are invited to sponsor a walk for $250 and provide walkers with an offer or discount on the services you are providing. This sponsorship will give your business exposure to walkers through a printed coupon on the back of our playful HaliFact cards. This offer will encourage more people to walk as well as help generate new clientele for your business. The money raised through this initiative will help cover the costs of offering the program.


We believe that businesses play an important and critical role in the revival, renewal and positive animation of downtown Halifax. Even if you are unable to financially support this initiative, we hope you will participate in Walk Halifax by spreading the word through your website, email lists and by word of mouth. We invite you and/or someone from your staff to participate and be part of these fun and community based walks.


The collaborative Walk Halifax project is designed to encourage Halifax community members working and living in downtown Halifax to get out and learn something new about the city while walking.

The overall goal of these walks is to reduce stress, increase physical activity, and foster a sense of belonging in our community. From our home page at walkhalifax.ca, we will offer and host a walk each week over the lunch hour, starting on September 21st and running until the end of October. Please join us also at the Walk Halifax launch party, 12 noon on September 14th at The Hub Halifax (1673 Barrington St.). All are welcome.

These walks are designed to encourage conversation and learning about our city. A team of volunteers will host the walks and lightly encourage conversation about our city based on some facts about the history and current news about development. Our Walk Halifax Fact Cards will include several interesting facts and a question for people to consider on the walk.

The arrangements of the sponsorship are as follows:


UPON RECEIPT OF SPONSORSHIP PAYMENT, Walk Halifax will provide the following:

Thank you for your support and assistance!

Walk Halifax is a volunteer based initiative. To contact us please email: hello@walkhalifax.ca. The Hub Halifax has also offered to be a stop-in point for people who have questions or need information about the walks. You can find us on the second floor of 1673 Barrington St. between Sackville and Prince.
