Our Work

Impacting lives for more than three generations.

Our work

MedicAlert is a registered Canadian charity dedicated to responsible fundraising and asset stewardship. We are governed by a Board of Directors that works in the service of long-term preservation and enhancement of the organization, while maintaining our goal to protect more Canadians through our programs and services.

Our aim is to direct the maximum amount of your donation to our charitable mission of protecting those with health conditions in their most vulnerable moments. It is also essential that we care for and treat our highly qualified staff fairly and provide them with the resources they need to continue doing their outstanding work.

The Impact of Our Work

In 2021, charitable donations and government grants comprised 11% of MedicAlert’s total revenue, with 86% of revenue coming from subscription fees & product sales and 3% from government subsidies for COVID-19 relief. MedicAlert invested 76% of its total expenses on its charitable mission, 21% of its expenses on administration, and 3% of its expenses on fundraising.

As a team, we are dedicated to the responsible management and oversight of MedicAlert’s financial resources. We strategically seek Board Members and staff who are highly qualified, and we are confident that a high level of financial acumen is represented throughout the organization. This ensures that we are operating in an ethical and efficient manner that will safeguard the strength and permanence of MedicAlert.
