The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday that the team will conduct training camp in Halifax from October 1-6, featuring an intra-squad game Saturday, October 6 at the Halifax Metro Centre.
The Raptors will conduct their practices at the Canada Games Centre.

It will be the fifth time the team has held a portion of camp outside of Ontario. The Raptors trained in Vancouver in 2010, Treviso and Rome, Italy and Madrid, Spain as part of NBA Europe Live in 2007, and Buffalo, New York in 2000 and 2001.

The Raptors return to Halifax where they played a preseason game in each of the team's first three seasons (1995-97). The very first game in team history took place in Halifax on October 14, 1995, with the Raptors posting a 120-107 preseason victory over Philadelphia.

Halifax has played host to the collegiate CIS championship for 24 consecutive years from 1984 to 2007. The event returned to Halifax in March 2011 and 2012. The Halifax Rainmen, a professional basketball club, has been in existence since 2007-08. Last season it was one of seven teams competing in NBL Canada's inaugural season.
