Since amputee veterans started the Key Tag Service in 1946, The War Amps has returned more than 1.5 million sets of lost keys to their owners. Today, this service is more important than ever, with the high replacement cost of keys and remote devices.
Key tags are mailed to Canadians once a year but are available for
order at any time. The sheltered workshop where the key tags are made provides employment for Canadian amputees and other people with disabilities.
When will my key tags be mailed?
Even if you have not donated, your lost keys will be returned to you if a War Amps key tag is attached to them and if the finder follows the instructions on the back of the tag.
Works Only in Canada
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.
