The Halifax Forum is an arena in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

It is the former home of the Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the American Hockey League. Other former tenants include the Halifax Junior Canadians, Halifax Wolverines (senior team), and the Maritime Major Hockey League's Halifax St. Mary's. The Voyageurs moved to the new Halifax Metro Centre in 1978. The arena now hosts Saint Mary's University hockey, Halifax McDonald's of the Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League and the QMJHL's Mooseheads preseason games.

It is also home to trade shows, concerts, basketball, boxing and curling. 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. During the 2011 Canada Games, the Forum hosted the boxing competitions.
