Vulnerable Persons Registry

What is the Vulnerable Person Registry?

The Vulnerable Person Registry is a registration system which allows citizens to record vital information pertaining to vulnerable family members or other persons in their care. This information will be used to assist police and other emergency services personnel, in the event of an incident involving the registered person.

Definition of a “Vulnerable” Person:

Any person having mental acuity deficiencies wherein the person cannot appreciate their surroundings and recognize the inherent dangers of environmental circumstances they find themselves in;

Any elderly person who is not medically diagnosed with a form of dementia, but by virtue of a mental infirmity causes him/her to wander and is a safety danger to themselves or others;

Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Acquired Brain Injury etc. Not all persons afflicted with these conditions need be registered - only if the caregiver or family member believes that their condition affects their cognitive ability AND they may pose a danger to themselves or others.

Goal of Registry:

The goal of the program is to give police quick access to critical information about a bona fide registered individual in an emergency situation.

Register annually:

Annual registration is required to keep your form active. It is the responsibility of the applicant to re-submit the form. It is recommended that you re-submit on the registrant’s birthday to make it easier to remember.

How to Register:
