About Us

Unravel is a magazine for a city that is rediscovering itself. As Halifax emerges from the pandemic, the city crackles with energy and potential—a place wiser, more confident, and keen to see what the future brings.

Building on the foundations of its forerunner Halifax Magazine, Unravel is the magazine for the people who believe in this city and its future.

We won’t just share Halifax’s stories: we’ll get to their heart, connecting readers with the people who shape our city.

With trendsetting artistic communities, growing diversity, thriving development, and a renewed love of all things local, there is much to celebrate in Halifax. With top-notch writing and vibrant photography, we’ll expose this city’s beating heart.

But if you love a city, you have to be honest with it. There is much to do to build the future Halifax deserves. Unravel’s award-winning journalists will also confront our city’s challenges, attack its injustices, and amplify the voices of changemakers.

In every issue, readers will find new perspectives on the people and personalities shaping Halifax, new angles on stories they thought they knew, and a diverse array of local arts, entertainment, business, crime, and political stories—a new lens for a renewed city.

From the publishers of Saltscapes, East Coast Living, Our Children, At Home on the North Shore, Good Taste, Port of Halifax, and several other regional titles.
