Join the HCC to support cycling advocacy in Halifax. Our influence at City Hall comes as a result of our existing membership. With your support, we can make an even bigger difference for cyclists in Halifax. As a small non-profit organization, your membership dues fund our advocacy and we consistently achieve results with very few resources. In addition to feeling great about your support for cycling, your membership allows you to vote at our general meetings, run for positions on the Board of Directors, and provides you with great benefits at a number of area businesses.
What has our membership achieved?
We have already made a difference for cyclists in Halifax. Our advocacy has resulted in:
