Halifax and Boston have a long relationship in trade, disaster relief and tourism dating back to Halifax's incorporation in 1749. From shipping and commerce routes, Boston's heroic and rapid dispatch of relief following the Halifax explosion and our Christmas tree tradition, to booming cross-border tourism and mutual support of Boston's sports teams, the bond between the these two cities is great.
