Thanks for your interest in supporting the work I do on  The site is funded solely by these methods.


Contribute To Halifax Trails     Contributing any amount.  I don’t have any outside government or corporate funding, so contributions from appreciative supporters are what I rely on.  Help fund the continued work of improving, expanding, updating and maintaining the site.   Supporters names are displayed under the “Supporters” heading on  Feel free to include a link or special instructions for your “Supporters” listing, or contact me with the info.


Amazon shop    Support by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it) 🙂.  I receive a small commission on all Amazon purchases through their affiliate program via that link.  A very easy way to support for those of you who do a lot of Amazon shopping.  Get family and friends to do the same and this could quickly become the #1 way to fund the site.

     You can also visit my online shop.  It’s a curated mix of products I’ve researched and recommend for various outdoor activities.  The shop has lots of great gear, books with a Nova Scotian focus and products I’ve created with my own photography.   Again, I receive a small commission (<10%) on all Amazon product purchases.

     Clicking on ads throughout the site helps pay for the yearly web hosting fees.  At a rate of pennies per click, it’s not much but it’s what pays that bill.  (With enough regular contributions, I’d gladly get rid of the ads).  Sharing and linking to my web pages, as well as liking, re-tweeting, commenting and subscribing to Halifax Trails on social media all greatly help exposure.
