Halifax Armdale is a provincial electoral district in Nova Scotia, Canada, that elects one member of the Nova Scotia House of Assembly. This Halifax district covers the growing population of the Fairmount, Armdale and Cowie Hill areas. The northern boundary is Highway 102, the eastern boundary is Joseph Howe Drive and the Northwest Arm, while the southern boundary is Frog Pond Park in Armdale.

The district was created in 1992 as Halifax Fairview and encompassed the Cowie Hill area, formerly part of Halifax Atlantic; the Fairview area, formerly part of Halifax Bedford Basin; and the area west of the CNR tracks, formerly part of Halifax Chebucto. In 2013, following the recommendations of the 2012 Electoral Boundaries Commission, it was renamed Halifax Armdale and gained 18 per cent of the district of Halifax Atlantic, including the area east of Herring Cove Road and north of the Frog Pond Park. It lost the area north of Highway 102 and east of Northwest Arm Drive and Dunbrack Street to Fairview-Clayton Park.[1]
