GI 2015 will be held in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia, split between Dalhousie University and Saint Mary's University campuses.
For a city with more pubs and clubs per capita than almost any city in Canada, it’s fitting that the most famous brewmaster was also Halifax's mayor. Three times. Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery welcomes visitors with costumed guides, stories and, of course, good ale.
Walk (don’t drive!) from Keith’s to the boardwalk that follows the water’s edge of the world’s second largest ice-free harbour. Stretching from Pier 21 – the gateway into Canada for one million immigrants – to Casino Nova Scotia, you’ll pass unique shops, restaurants, and in the warmer months, graceful tall ships.
