BMO Centre Halifax NS

In early 2009, the Halifax Regional Municipality and Nustadia Recreation Inc. entered into a long-term agreement to develop, build and operate a multi-pad, multi-use recreation facility in Bedford, NS.

The BMO Centre opened in the fall of 2010, approximately 12 months after construction commenced. This state-of-the-art 160,000 SF facility includes four NHL sized ice surfaces, four beach volleyball courts, multi-purpose community space, meeting rooms, user group office space, a full service food and beverage outlet overlooking 3 ice surfaces, a Cleve’s Source for Sports retail outlet, and a Subway Sandwich outlet.

BMO Centre Halifax NSThis LEED equivalent facility incorporates many environmentally friendly and energy saving features such as natural lighting, radiant heating, waste heat recovery to heat the building and water, and an ice battery storage system for refrigeration energy efficiency and cooling.  

The vision for the BMO Centre was to create a facility that is architecturally and programmatically a source of pride for all of HRM, providing quality services for the community, and generating sport tourism opportunities that benefit and promote the region. The 4 pad arena complex provides year round recreation opportunities for youth and those who are still young at heart, attract major events, provide an economic impact to HRM, and be a first class recreation destination.

The Nustadia management team at the BMO Centre has the community at heart. Working together, HRM and Nustadia developed a Community Access Plan that values gender equity, fully accessible facilities, community inclusion at all levels, sport development and personal growth through active lifestyles.
