Message from the BID Board Chair (Leigh-Anne Stradeski)


The current Halifax BID term is due to end in March 2022. As such, we have now begun the process of renewal which will culminate in a vote by businesses in a ballot to be held late this year.


“We have achieved a lot together over the last four years but in these challenging times we need to ensure that we create a new business plan which is fit for purpose for the next five years and beyond and your involvement is crucial, so we can build upon what we have already accomplished and ensure that our business community benefit from new opportunities and drive the future development of the area.”


There will be forthcoming communications and updates in the weeks ahead, with regular Renewal Ebulletins to keep you updated, workshops to enable you to provide your input and new features on the BID website.


(Leigh-Anne Stradeski) – Chairman of the Board

What is renewal?

Halifax BID is a Business Improvement District both funded and governed by businesses located in the Halifax BID boundaries. Since April 2017, the BID team has carried out a five-year strategy which has raised the profile of Halifax making it a safer, cleaner and livelier place to visit and do business. The current Halifax BID term is due to end in March 2022 and must undergo what is called a ‘Renewal Ballot’. Businesses who are over a certain rateable value within the BID area will be asked to vote in favour of supporting a second five-year term. The outcome of the Renewal Vote will affect the future of the Halifax business community.

Get involved

To make sure that the BID is able to provide the support your business needs over the next five years we need your thoughts, views and ideas. Besides the existing BID activities and opportunities there will be a variety of different ways in which you can help shape the future plan. Please see some of these opportunities listed below.
