Current Webcam Views from Halifax, Nova Scotia [N.S. Flag]

[Halifax Harbour View]

 Updated/Verified: 7 July 2009 

To the best of my knowledge, this is the most complete and up-to-date listing of Halifax, Nova Scotia webcams on the Internet. If you know of any new URLs for Metropolitan Halifax webcams, please forward them to me at

In the mid-1980s I got to see the view from the roof of Fenwick Place and could only describe it to other people; now I'm lucky enough to run a live camera from there for Chebucto Community Net.

It is hard to keep a webcam running and webcams come and go. Even when you're determined to keep one running, there's a myriad of things that can go wrong with them. So if one of these links is dead today, it can be worth trying it tomorrow.
