DHBC Event Sponsorship

Downtown Halifax Business Commission (DHBC) offers a limited number of sponsorships for events and activations that bring residents, workers, and visitors together to participate in exciting and/or unique experiences that contribute to the vibrancy and prosperity in Downtown Halifax.

Sponsorship amounts range from $250.00 up to (but not exceeding) $5,000.00 (including HST where applicable). Sponsorship applicants are welcome to apply for any amount between that range at any time throughout the year. 

DHBC also supports organizations with in-kind sponsorship. In-kind sponsorship could include all or any of the following: an event listing on downtownhalifax.ca, promotion through DHBC's social media channels, inclusion in both the Bi-weekly Update newsletter to members and the public-facing events e-newsletter, and advocacy, facilitation and/or guidance from DHBC staff. Additional opportunities may exist based on the proposal and potential partnership opportunities.

Please note that DHBC does not sponsor the following types of events:

  • Activations, initiatives, or events that take place outside of the Downtown Halifax area
  • Political or religious events or rallies, professional conventions or conferences, or charitable or fundraising efforts
  • Events or initiatives that are exclusively virtual or online only
