HALIFAX, N.S. —
It’s good that Halifax did well economically last year because it formed a foundation that should help the region rebound as COVID-19 eases off.
Research released Tuesday by the Halifax Partnership has some civic leaders optimistic that the municipality may have weathered the worst of the pandemic.
“This has been a bruising time and it's not over, but Halifax will demonstrate its resilience,” Mayor Mike Savage told an online audience gathered for a presentation on the report.
“We will again welcome newcomers and tourists from around the world. We will be a centre for research and innovation. We will continue to be a centre for shipbuilding excellence. We will regain the successes of our port and international airport, and we will continue to support startups and entrepreneurs.”
