City launches Voluntary Vulnerable Persons Registry

By Caitlin Snow Nov 8, 2023 | 2:05 PM

Halifax Regional Municipality has launched a Voluntary Vulnerable Persons Registry.

The city says it’s a self-referral list for those without 24 hours support, and have difficulty with the following:

  • Mobility
  • Vision impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Developmental disabilities
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Mental health conditions
  • Any resident who requires electricity for life-sustaining equipment such as oxygen, dialysis, etc.

It’s a way to provide important information to first responders, staff and volunteers so they can respond appropriately to those in need.

Not everyone may be eligible, especially those who may have 24 hours support from a caregiver, homecare aide, or live in long-term care.

Once the form is completed, a Coordinator will follow up with you.

You can fill out the self-referral form or call 311.
