Open Data

The municipal government is committed to providing public access to its data. Through open data, data created or managed by the municipality can be made available for anyone to download, while still respecting privacy and sensitivity concerns.

The datasets do not contain any personal information.

The Halifax Open Data Catalogue

The Halifax Open Data Catalogue is powered by Esri’s ArcGIS Open Data platform. It has enhanced API functionality for geospatial datasets that allows you to filter by map extents and attributes prior to downloading so that you get only the data you need.


For more information on the ESRI Open Data platform and for developer requirements, please visit ArcGIS Open Data.

Updates and new datasets

The municipality will continually update the Open Data Catalogue and add new datasets. Please visit our Notifications and new releases to see the most current information on data releases.

The data catalogue is refreshed on a weekly basis, however some datasets are static.
