When You Renew Your Driver’s Licence, Say “YES” to The War Amps Key Tag Service

The War Amps and the Alberta government have embarked on a joint project that will allow The War Amps to continue providing its services to Albertans. With your consent, the Alberta government will provide The War Amps with your name and address so that we can mail key tags to Albertans.

When you renew your licence at your local Registry Agent Office, you have the opportunity to sign a consent form releasing ONLY your name and address to The War Amps. By saying yes, you will be added to The War Amps mailing list to receive your confidentially coded key tags once a year.

There is no cost for the service and no obligation to donate. If you see value in the way the Key Tag Service safeguards your keys, you can choose to make a donation.

For Trinity, growing out of her artificial legs is like every child who has a growth spurt and grows out of their shoes. The War Amps gives parents peace of mind because we don’t have to worry about not being able to afford a new artificial leg or adjustment. This would not be possible without the generosity of Canadians. I feel like I owe them a big thank you. And a big thank you on behalf of Trinity, who is able to do what anyone else can – just differently – because of your support of the Key Tag Service. Trinity's Mom

How long is your consent valid?

Your consent is valid for five years and can be renewed each time you renew your licence. By doing so, you will continue to receive your key tags and The War Amps will continue to receive your up-to-date address automatically from the Alberta government.

What if you want to withdraw your consent?

You can contact us at any time if you would like to remove your name and address from our files.

The War Amps Key Tag Service

It works! Nearly 13,000 sets of lost keys are returned every year.
With the high replacement cost of keys and remote devices, this service is more important than ever!

  • Attach a confidentially coded War Amps key tag to your key ring. It is registered only to your name and address.
  • If you lose your keys, the finder can call the toll-free number on the back of the tag or place them in any mailbox in Canada.
  • The War Amps will return your keys to you by courier, free of charge.

Protect the valuables on your key ring with a War Amps key tag and help support programs for amputees.

Thank you for the safe return of my keys! My car fob would have cost $265 to replace, so I am especially happy to have it back. Joffre

The War Amps DOES NOT:

  • Use professional fundraisers
  • Receive government grants
  • Solicit by phone or door-to-door
  • Sell or trade your name/address
  • Spend more than 10% on administration
  • Tie up funds in long-term investments
I want to thank the person who found my keys and called the number on the back of my War Amps key tag. The War Amps returned them to me by courier and saved me hundreds of dollars in replacement costs! Alex
