Preliminary estimates from Statistics Canada have Halifax's population on July 1, 2021, at 459,938. This is a 2.5% (+11,394) increase over 2020 - the largest increase in our history.

With East Hants being added into Halifax's CMA the current estimate would be around 485,000.

December 2022, Halifax will likely pass 500,000.

Also this data was released early because of an emergency situation in Atlantic Canada:

Preliminary population estimates for municipalities in Atlantic provinces, as of July 1, 2021

Released: 2021-11-26

In response to emergency situations in Atlantic provinces (Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick), preliminary population estimates (as of July 1, 2021) for municipalities of these provinces are available today upon request. Preliminary subprovincial population estimates for all provinces and territories will be released on January 13, 2022.
