About The Registration Form

The Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities) Act, 2014, requires that the National Commission for Persons with Disabilities register persons with disabilities in The Bahamas. The Commission will use the information on this form to assist in developing public policy and measures for the benefit and wellbeing of persons with disabilities.

The Act is intended to end the discrimination against persons with disabilities, protect their rights, ensure accessibility, and advance equal opportunities. We need your help to accomplish this. The Act, in part, states that “persons with disabilities” means persons with a long term disability (physical, mental, intellectual, developmental or sensory impairments) who, when they are in contact with various barriers, may be hindered in fully and equally participating in society.

Items to Accompany The Form

Please fill in this form to the best of your ability. You must attach the following:

  • A copy of a valid government issued photo ID (driver’s license, voter’s card, passport, NIB Card)
  • A copy of a medical doctor’s letter certifying that you are a person with a disability.

Please know that Section 50 of the Persons with Disabilities Act makes it an offense to knowingly give false information to the Commission for the purpose of being registered or for the purpose of acquiring any privilege due to persons so registered.
