Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) called on non-profit community groups to submit their proposals regarding potential future use of the St. Patrick’s Alexandra site.

Applicants had 90 days to submit their proposals. The closing date was Tuesday, November 12 2013.

Below is the formal Call for Submissions, as well as important information on the site's property condition. The Call for Submissions outlines the procedure for disposal of St. Patrick’s Alexandra site, the information that should be contained in the submissions, as well as the evaluation criteria. Site visits for applicants were held on Saturday, August 17th and Friday, August 23rd.
