Halifax is located on the eastern shores of Nova Scotia, and is the same province's capital city.1 This seaport was established in 1749 as a British settlement and military centre, and by the time it was incorporated as a town in 1841, its population had boomed, largely as a result of Loyalist migration following the American Revolution.2
