In Halifax this summer, there is an abundance of activities and experiences awaiting us, and we are delighted to showcase them in this edition of the magazine. From the picturesque waterfront to the vibrant festivals that extend well into the fall, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

As the warm weather graces us, patio season beckons us to downtown Halifax, where we have the opportunity to support and uplift local businesses. Indulge in the delightful atmosphere and savour the unique offerings that these establishments have to offer.

Let us embrace the spirit of community and celebration as we explore the vibrant and captivating experiences that await us this summer in Halifax. I am filled with excitement as we embark on this summer and the exciting times that lie ahead. This particular edition of our magazine holds a special place in my heart as it marks a significant transition within our organization. I am thrilled to announce that nominations are now open for the “Celebrating the Most Inspiring Immigrants in Atlantic Canada” initiative, proudly presented by RBC. We wholeheartedly encourage you to nominate immigrant leaders who are making a remarkable and positive impact within our community.

Our dedication to working closely with immigrant entrepreneurs remains unwavering as we provide them with the necessary resources to flourish through our Creative Hub programming.

It is disheartening to observe that immigrants who aspire to start businesses in Canada often encounter significant barriers. Many struggle to secure funding, grants, and the essential resources needed to kickstart their entrepreneurial journey.

At the Creative Hub, we strive to be the bridge that connects immigrants with these invaluable resources. While the Creative Hub traditionally focused on physical locations, we have evolved our approach to create a digital village where immigrants from diverse areas can access our programming.

This magazine edition continues to celebrate Halifax and the remarkable contributions of immigrants within our community. We witness the continual arrival of new immigrants who choose Halifax as their home, where they flourish and make substantial contributions to our local economy.


However, we recognize that there is still much work to be done in supporting immigrant entrepreneurs within our region. Therefore, we are committed to providing them with the necessary resources to start and scale their businesses. Immigrants bring immense value to the local economy, and by empowering immigrant business owners, we, in turn, empower the growth of our local economy.


I am profoundly grateful for the ongoing support and partnership we receive as we continue on this journey of celebrating immigrants who are making a positive and lasting impact within our community.
