New Street Name Suggestions for Cornwallis Street Survey

The Halifax Regional Municipality is conducting a survey to collect new street name suggestions for Cornwallis Street in Halifax. Phase one of the survey will be open from Monday, Oct. 4 until Friday, Nov. 12, 2021.

The renaming of Cornwallis Street project is one of the recommendations of the Task Force on the Commemoration of Edward Cornwallis and the Recognition and Commemoration of Indigenous History, and a step towards reconciliation.

Once phase one of the survey closes, all submissions will be reviewed by civic addressing and diversity and inclusion staff, as well as local councillors, in accordance with civic addressing policies. The submissions will be vetted based on four criteria, including appropriateness, cultural significance, diversity, and originality.
