When the temple was opened to the public, prior to the dedication, about 8,000 people toured the building. Because of mechanical problems with Church President Gordon B. Hinckley's plane, the Halifax temple dedication was delayed a day so that it was dedicated on the same day as the Regina Saskatchewan Temple. This marked the first time two LDS temples were dedicated on the same day. President Hinckley opted to stay in Darmouth while Apostle Boyd K. Packer went to Regina.
President Hinckley dedicated the Halifax temple on November 14, 1999. The temple has a total floor area of 10,700 square feet (990 m2), two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
