BGC Greater Halifax officially opened its doors on April 1st, 2016. The organization is the result of the merger of previously independently run Clubs in East Dartmouth, North Dartmouth, Sackville, Spryfield and Cole Harbour communities. These sites boast a combined total of 100 years of service within their respective neighbourhoods. BGC Greater Halifax offers a diverse and dynamic range of programs that serve children and youth from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and neighbourhoods. Helping more than 4,100 kids annually, BGC Greater Halifax provides safe, supportive spaces where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships, and develop confidence and skills for life.
