Halifax Water is a great place to work!  But don't take it from us; this is what our employees have to say!


Previously, working in the construction industry, I worked long hours away from my family with minimal job security. Halifax Water changed all of this. I now work standard hours, with job security, an excellent benefit that allows me to have vacation time to spend with my family, a pension to prepare for retirement and opportunities for movement within the company.  I enjoy coming to work and the sense of camaraderie I have with my coworkers. 

- Troy Blackmore, Utility Worker I   Troy Blackmore Testimonial


As a consultant, Halifax Water was viewed as an elite client where projects were unique, integrated, and deliverables were held to a high standard.  In addition, Halifax Water’s statement of “Striving for World Class” was represented in the attitude of employees.  I am pleased to say that my expectations have been exceeded since I started with Halifax Water.  Halifax Water stresses the importance of work-life balance and as a husband and father of two children this is very important to me. To be part of an organization that offers a challenging professional career with growth opportunities all the while respecting your home life is a dream come true for a family man.

Throughout my eight month co-op work term with Halifax Water, I have had my most well rounded work experience to date. I have been involved in field work, report writing, executive meetings, volunteer events, and have had the opportunity to collaborate with a number of different divisions within the company. I would recommend Halifax Water to any student looking for a great experience with outstanding people!

I am really enjoying my time working at Halifax Water. It’s been a great place to learn and grow as an operator and professionally. They provide great benefits, not only with health and pension, but also fitness and education, which I’ve been taking advantage.  The people I work with are wonderful and make the day fun and interesting. It’s been challenging, but I just say, bring it on!

Water is perhaps one of the most important resources in our society today and increasingly so in the future.  Knowing this gives me a sense of importance in the work I do and I feel morally great about working with Halifax Water to provide safe, potable drinking water to thousands of people.
