Focused on the records of city and county governments from 1841 onwards, the the Halifax Municipal Archives also has records from families, businesses, and community organizations going back to the 1790s, which complement the municipal government records.

We now have a wonderful online resource for naturalization records! Lorine McGinnis Schulze has added NaturalizationRecords.com to her impressive Olive Tree Genealogy family of genealogy sites.
The Naturalization Records site has created a directory to free records for USA and Canada. You can find Passport Applications, Citizenship Certificates, Declarations of Intent, Alien Registrations and more. The site also points to substitute naturalization records like ships passenger lists, oaths of allegiance and voter registration lists.
One of the very nice things you’ll find at this site is help. When I clicked to look at Canadian records, I was presented with a page that presented descriptions of the different record sets along with suggestions on where to looks first. Lorine has spent a lot of time and effort describing the kind of information each database contains and offering tips on how to search them.
