We began in 1956 with a simple idea...

A father’s desire to protect his daughter became a mission that is still changing the world today—one life at a time.

What we do makes a difference.

You know us by our iconic medical IDs. What you may not know is that MedicAlert manages one of the largest Personal Health Record databases in Canada.  

  • We are the only organization that ensures you carry your health information with you wherever you go.  
  • Your bracelet, necklace, or shoe tag is the gateway to your clinically validated Personal Health Record that first responders use in a health emergency.  
  • We are the information bridge between first responders and those living with a health condition when seconds matter most.  

From children with complex health conditions to seniors living with Alzheimer's, our programs help people with chronic health conditions live their best lives.
