In 1995 and 1996, all three cities were dissolved and amalgamated into regional municipalities. Nova Scotia no longer maintains cities as first-tier municipalities, however it has designated the former cities of Halifax and Dartmouth, the two largest by population, as "Metropolitan Areas" within their respective regional municipality. Sydney, being somewhat smaller in population, is referred to as an "Urban Community."
