Member Groups

Alliance members are all organizations. They come from every corner of the municipality – rural, suburban, and the urban core.  Business associations, health organizations, environmental and community groups, groups focussed on transportation, trails, tax reform, land use planning and resource management. The membership is extremely diverse and growing. Every one is committed to a more sustainable and liveable Halifax.

Representatives from six member organizations form the Alliance’s Steering Committee: the Five Bridges Wilderness Heritage Trust, Williams Lake Conservation Association, Sackville Rivers Association, Downtown Halifax Business Commission, the Ecology Action Centre, and Fusion Halifax.
