About

Who We Are:

Our goal is to communicate the experiences of our region’s newcomers. By sharing their stories, from their struggles and cultural adjustments, to their victories and achievements, we strive to inspire others. We hope to inspire East Coasters to welcome immigrants with open minds and open arms, and we hope to inspire newcomers to stay, take advantage of the region’s amazing opportunities, make the East Coast their home and flourish. We believe this growing population can and will add to our already vibrant and rich Atlantic Canadian culture.

Our Channels/Events:

Online
My East Coast Experience has evolved from My Halifax Experience. The two brands work together to reach out to our region’s immigrant population. In the beginning, the My Halifax Experience website spoke to our Halifax newcomers, but once we saw the rest of the region’s immigrant population booming, we expanded our brand to My East Coast Experience, resulting in this growing website.

My Halifax Experience Magazine
The Halifax version of the magazine, which celebrates culture, diversity and opportunity in Atlantic Canada’s biggest city, is printed quarterly with 10,000 distributed free through universities and college, libraries, government agencies and select retail locations.

TV/Web Series – COMING SOON!

The Mosaic Festival
We are proud to be the organizers of Halifax’s new multicultural festival, The Mosaic Festival. Pairing a vibrant parade with a waterfront party, the city will come alive with culture and diversity for one day. Find out more here.
