Salter Street Boardwalk on the Halifax waterfront


Events Description


We all deserve to feel hope.

Located along the Salter Street Boardwalk on the Halifax waterfront, the Tunnel of Hope is brought to you by Emera and Nova Scotia Power in support of the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. It is sure to add a touch of magic to your holiday season as you follow the glow of Evergreen Bright, a walkable outdoor trail of twinkling holiday lights along the waterfront and throughout downtown Halifax.

Not only do we believe there is light at the end of the tunnel, but that hope can be found at any stage of the journey. As you traverse our 150-foot illuminated tunnel, you will hear inspiring stories of hope along the way. We know this holiday season has the potential to be even more difficult than most for those who already struggle with mental illness and addiction.

You can help us provide hope and eradicate stigma surrounding mental disorders by making a donation to the Tunnel of Hope. Together we can keep changing the way people think.
