Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • There are over 550,000 Canadians living with dementia and this number will double by 2030;
  • 60% of people with Alzheimer's will wander at least once during their disease. Wandering is common as the disease progresses;
  • Silver Alert is a public notification system to quickly help find seniors who wander because of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias;
  • A Silver Alert would provide information to media outlets and activate an emergency alert system through law enforcement agencies; and
  • The Provinces of Alberta and Manitoba have established a Silver Alert, through an amendment to their Missing Persons Amendment Act.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to develop a National Silver Alert strategy for all Canadian provinces and territories.

If you wish to sign this petition, please provide the required information in the fields below. Your personal information will not be made public.
