Canada 150 Road Trip – Stop 1: Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is a province rich in culture – and a fitting location to kick off our Digital Road Trip in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday! Our campaign kicked off on Canada Day, marking the start of an exciting six month digital journey across our beautiful country. We’ll be featuring a different Canadian region each month of the campaign, giving our customers the chance to win a $250 Flight Centre gift card in each destination. Learn more about the contest and see our road trip schedule.

Throughout the trip, we’ll be showcasing some of the awesome people and communities that make our company and our country great. TPH has been proudly Canadian owned and operated since its inception in 1961, and we love being able to cultivate local stories about the places in which we do business.

We’re taking time to sit down with our Branches to learn more about what makes them special, and to share their unique points of view. Check back to discover the stories behind our locations as we celebrate the reasons why we love the True North, strong and free!


TPH Branch 59 in Halifax is the featured location for our Nova Scotia trip stop! Read more about their fantastic staff, recommendations for exploring the area, and what they love about Canada!

Our Halifax location was one of the original branches opened in the 1970s. A true East Coast destination, the city is bursting with natural beauty, from the scenic ocean shore only a stone’s throw away, to the abundance of lush local parks. Whether you’re searching for great craft beer or a bustling local food scene, Halifax is a laid-back city offering something for everyone.

The team at Branch 59 in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Branch Number: 59

How long has your branch been serving the Halifax community? 30+ years

What makes the team special at your branch?

We are creative, customer focused and make customer service a priority.  The team has high level skills and produce beautiful products. We are adaptable and patient.

What do you love most about Halifax?  We are in the heart of the downtown district of Halifax.  We are surrounded by new and old at the same time with a diverse mix of people, culture, and food.  We love our short commute times, the park across the street, and that the boardwalk is a quick walk from the branch.

If I had one day in Halifax, what should I see and do? 

You would explore the waterfront, see tall ships, eat Cows Ice cream, hear the noon cannon from Citadel Hill. You would explore the diverse arts culture of our city, visit our new library, and walk the public gardens or explore Point Pleasant Park where you can watch the ships enter the harbour.

How does Canada inspire you?

The diversity, the great outdoors, the people, the scenery, and the opportunities.

 It also is inspiring that people can immigrate to our country and create better lives for all of us.

How does working for a Canadian company inspire you?

Knowing that the profits we help create circulate directly back into the national economy feels good.
