Wake Up Halifax - A Day of Action

On December 6, 1917, a devastating explosion tore through the heart of the city. and led to a historic outpouring of compassion and community-building. A century and a day later, Wake Up Halifax is an opportunity for all of us to come together once again.

Wake Up Halifax is special city-wide day of action that will see at least 100 volunteer projects happening across the Halifax Regional Municipality in one day, proving once again that Nova Scotians are people who show up for each other.

Together, let's make December 7, 2017 a day to remember!
