Ciad Mile Fàilte

We are a men's association in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We celebrate the life and works of Robert Burns and promote Scottish heritage.

Our organization is based on the Tarbolton Bachelors' Club founded by Burns. Like the original club, we seek to be “a diversion for the weary man worn down by necessary labours of life”.


We have a choir which is welcomed at numerous venues in town. Our members perform other work for good causes. Our Burns Supper is the highlight of our social year. It is highly regarded for its good times and top speakers.




The next HBC meeting will be on June 4th at 7:30 pm. It will be a virtual session on Zoom but will constitute a formal club meeting. Check your email for the Zoom coordinates.


How are HBC members spending the COVID-19 lockdown?

The Halifax Burns Club expresses its sincere sympathies to the family of the late Captain Angus McDonald. He was an esteemed member of our club from its earliest days.
