Halifax Regional Council

Halifax, formally known as Halifax Regional Municipality, was created in April 1996 with the amalgamation of four smaller municipal units. The Halifax Regional Council was formed at the time of the HRM's incorporation and consisted of twenty-three councillors and one mayor. It was reduced in size to sixteen councillors and the mayor in 2012.

Elections are held every four years on leap years. By-elections for council seats have been held in 1998, 1999, 2003, 2006 and 2007 after some regional councillors were elected to the provincial legislature.

An examination of boundaries took place throughout 2003/04 upon which there was a redistribution of districts. The 2004 municipal election saw the combination of two districts into one in Cole Harbour, as well as the creation of a new district in Clayton Park West.
