Halifax West

Halifax West (French: Halifax-Ouest) is a federal electoral district in Nova Scotia, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1979. Its population in 2016 was 96,255.

The district includes the communities of Bedford, the west end of Halifax, and an area that extends to the community of Upper Hammonds Plains in the north, Tantallon in the west and Terence Bay in the south. The area is 227.35 km2 (87.78 sq mi).

The electoral district was created in 1976 from Halifax—East Hants riding. This riding lost territory to South Shore—St. Margarets as a result of the 2012 federal electoral redistribution.

Changes for the Canadian Alliance from 1997 are based on the results of its predecessor, the Reform Party.
