The management plan public consultations are an opportunity for everyone to shape the future of the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site and the four other national historic sites that together make up the Halifax Defence Complex.

Management plans are a strategic guide, and the primary accountability document, for the future management of Parks Canada national parks and historic sites. They are required by legislation, guided by public consultation, approved by the Minister responsible for Parks Canada, and then tabled in Parliament.

We are in Mi'kma'ki
These national historic sites are within Mi’kma’ki, the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. Over 270 years ago, the British arrived to this area and built the first of a series of forts as the core of their Halifax Naval Base defences. The “Let’s Talk Parks Canada Halifax!” consultation process will explore ways to share the diverse stories of all those who are connected to these sites, including the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia.

All registered participants will be notified when the “What We Heard” document is published and the second phase of consultations begin.



  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Welcome to the Halifax Defence Complex survey on its Draft Management Plan. In Spring 2019, Parks Canada consulted with Canadians and received more than 320 responses to our request for input. The thoughtful responses received during this consultation process are a testament to the strong connection Canadians feel for this special place. That feedback helped guide the development of the Halifax Defence Complex draft management plan. This survey will assess support for the management plan which reflects key interests and priorities heard during the earlier stage of engagement. Information gathered from this survey will help finalize the future  management direction for the Complex.

    Following your review of the Draft Management Plan, please complete our short survey.
