Support Local Together


Dine & Stay Home and Shop & Stay Home are programs created through a collaboration between partners across the Halifax Region, who have come together to help support local businesses impacted by COVID-19.

Together, we are encouraging Haligonians and Nova Scotians to help #supportlocal in any way that they are comfortable and able to do so.


Find out where you can support local while practicing responsible social distancing by ordering delivery and/or pick-up from restaurants, or shopping local retailers online.

More Ways You Can #SupportLocal

The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone, including but not limited to local businesses. Many people are adjusting to changing household budgets and are not necessarily in a position to support local businesses by ordering delivery or pick-up for dinner, or by purchasing local art or household supplies.


There are plenty of non-financial ways to show your support – consider one of the following:

  • Following and liking your favourite local restaurants & businesses on social media.
  • Sharing their social media content with others.
  • Leaving a positive online review to support the business when things are up and running again.
  • Post a Dine & Stay Home graphic on your social channels to show your support [Download Here]
