Become a Coast Insider member

A Coast Insider membership is for anyone who wants to learn about their community, their neighbours, and themselves.

It's for anyone who believes that Halifax is a diverse, fascinating, exciting place, and that learning about this place will help us continue to make it better. The Coast is dedicated to producing a daily newsletter and journalism focused on informing our community, sharing its successes, and demonstrating how it can continue to grow, evolve, and improve.

And it’s only $8.25 per month (on an annual membership).

A Coast membership means you're playing your part in that. But it also provides a convenient and easy way to discover more about your community.

Beyond our daily newsletters and web stories, members will gain access to:

Access to every piece of journalism we publish

We’re known for our in-depth, award-winning journalism. You get it all, without any worry of ever being hit with a paywall.

Food and drink recommendations

Discover new places to eat and drink in Halifax, all highlighted in the daily newsletter.

All the events

Want to know what’s going on in our community? Members get exclusive access to all our event listings, concert and event announcements, sporting events, and a special weekly roundup just before the weekend hits – all in the daily newsletter.

A special weekend edition newsletter

We get it. You’re busy, and you’re not going to read every email in your inbox. So we’ll send you an email every Saturday with a roundup of our key stories, crucial stories and events you might’ve missed from the past week. Great for a sleepy Saturday (or Sunday).

As a member, you'll play a key role in the continued existence and growth of the Halifax’s most ambitious and dynamic media organization. We can't do this without you. But we can do A LOT with you.


Is a Coast Insider membership tax deductible?

Not yet, but it should be soon! One of our sister publications has been approved for the federal digital news subscription tax credit, which gets you 15% back. Once approved, a Coast Insider membership will drop down to just $7.01 monthly (or just $1.62 per week!).
