Paramedics and Emergency Responders National Education Program

MedicAlert trains Canada’s healthcare professionals on the “Look, Read, Call” procedure. This renowned program teaches paramedics and emergency responders to look for the official medical ID, and how best to use the exclusive 24/7 Emergency Hotline to access our subscribers’ detailed health profiles. Their mission is the same as ours: to save lives. Learn more about Paramedics and Emergency Responders National Education Program

First Nations

For the last 35 years, we've worked with Health Canada to make MedicAlert services available to First Nations and Inuit families and communities. Financial assistance is available under Health Canada's Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) program. Download the First Nations MedicAlert brochure




Membership Assistance

Some Canadians cannot afford MedicAlert protection. We don't want to turn anyone away from our lifesaving service, so our Membership Assistance program provides partial or full financial assistance for MedicAlert IDs and service plans for eligible applicants.
