Need to find an old civic address?
The City of Halifax Former Civic Address Cross-Reference is a basic tool to convert a current 4-digit civic address to the pre-1960 former civic numbers and vice-versa. Many historical resources, like property assessment records, building inspection permits, and photographs are organized by civic number, so researchers need to know what the contemporary number was. Please be aware that not all civic addresses are represented in this tool; it is based on an old card catalogue of notifications that were mailed out by the City of Halifax at the time of the change-over, and somehow not all addresses were included.
Thank you to the Municipality's Civic Addressing unit for compiling and sharing this tool.
