Key Tag Service

This Is a War Amps Key Tag!

Order Your Key Tags Today

War Amps key tags safeguard your keys, including expensive-to-replace car fobs. The Key Tag Service is free – and it works!

How do key tags work?

  • Key tags are mailed to Canadians once a year. See mailing schedule
  • 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 number on the back of the tag or drop them in any mailbox in Canada.
  • The War Amps will return your keys to you by courier, free of charge.

Since amputee veterans started the Key Tag Service in 1946, more than 1.5 million sets of lost keys have been returned to their owners. Key tags are produced in Canada at The War Amps sheltered workshop, employing people with disabilities.

The Key Tag Service is free, but if you find value in The War Amps programs and services, you can choose to make a donation.

You Are a Part of What We Do

Since The War Amps first sent out key tags 75 years ago, the public’s participation in the service has made it a success. By using the Key Tag Service, you are a part of what we do! Your support funds essential programs for children, veterans and all amputees across Canada.

“We have supported The War Amps for more than 30 years. Then, two years ago, we lost our keys twice in short order. Only two days later, we got an envelope in the mail containing all our keys. Not only is the Key Tag Service fast, but it is also extremely dependable. Thank you so much!” Jack and Nicole

Partnership With Canada Post

A set of keys with a War Amps key tag, deposited in a mailbox in Canada, is forwarded to us as a result of an agreement between Canada Post and The War Amps. We do not have such an agreement with postal services outside of Canada. Although some keys have been returned to Canadian owners from locations abroad, we cannot guarantee that our tags will protect your keys if they are lost outside Canada. We can guarantee, though, that The War Amps toll-free number, printed on the back of the tag, does work in the United States.
