Our Story

Since 1857, a BOOM echoes—at 12pm—through Halifax’s  downtown. We are Boom12, boutique digital born from a love of Halifax and her grit.

Back in 2013, I was at a turning point, my boss retired and I had to move on. The first big question I asked was ‘should I stay or should I go?’

I chose to stay. I chose to stick it out in our awesome little corner of the world.

Deciding to stay and to start a business made Halifax and its potential an important part of my life. That’s why the name Boom12 is a hat-tip to Halifax.

This is a company just like yours, committed to our city and its future.
