Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) Greater Halifax is one of 50 VON Canada sites. VON Canada has more than 5,500 staff and 9,500 volunteers across the country. VON provides three levels of care: preventative care, medical care, and supportive care. This is done through home nursing, personal/home support, corporate health, and volunteer services.
Established in 1897, VON Greater Halifax was one of the first VON sites in Canada. Today our nurses make an average of 13,000 nursing visits a month throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality. Once referred to VON, people of all ages can receive a wide variety of nursing/medical care in their home. We also have a wonderful team of over 200 volunteers who provide supportive care in the community. VON relies on donor generosity to support the nurses and volunteers in delivering their services.
