The Halifax Forum is located in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was built in 1928 on the site of the former Provincial Exhibition Building which had been destroyed in the Halifax Explosion on December 6, 1917. It is the former home of the Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the American Hockey League. Other former tenants include the Halifax Canadiens, Halifax Wolverines (senior team), and the Maritime Major Hockey League's Halifax St Marys.
The Voyageurs moved to the new Halifax Metro Centre in 1978.
The arena now hosts Saint Mary's University hockey, Dalhousie University men's hockey, Halifax Lions of the Maritime Junior A Hockey League, Halifax McDonald's of the Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League, the QMJHL's Mooseheads preseason games. In 2012 it also became home to the Dalhousie Tigers men's hockey team due to the Dalhousie Memorial Arena closing.
The arena's capacity for hockey is 5,600. The largest audience for an event held at the Forum was reportedly close to 8,600 people, at the first live World Wrestling Federation show in Halifax, on July 18, 1987, which featured a main event match between then-WWF champion Hulk Hogan and Randy "Macho Man" Savage.
