Haligonians have a new destination for the latest local news, features on community leaders and events, business openings and everything in between, with the debut of CityNews Halifax. Powered by CityNews 95.7, journalists from Rogers Media’s award-winning news and talk radio station will provide the local news content on the website.
Desktop? Mobile? Tablet? Definitely.
We break locally-driven news written by local journalists and cover all the important issues in Halifax. It’s our top priority. We update throughout the day, so when you come back to visit, chances are you’ll find something new.
In addition to hard news, we also provide information that is important to the community that you won’t find in most media. We like to write stories about new local businesses, highlight special events and bring you general information about anything that impacts the heart of the community. Although we are hyper-local in our approach, we also provide national news from The Canadian Press, entertainment and special features.
We promise that we’ll remain fiercely local. Like you.

CityNews Halifax is proud to broadcast from Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
