75 Years of the War Amps Key Tag

Updated: Apr 17, 2023

CFBS NEWS BLANC-SABLON - MARCH 29, 2021 - Safeguard your keys with the War Amps!

CFBS was speaking with Sofia Benzakour, Communications assistant for the Quebec department of War Amps Canada, about their key tag campaign. The War Amps began their 2021 key tag campaign last month in Quebec, the theme “You Are a Part of What We Do,” marks the 75th anniversary of the Association’s Key Tag program!

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 persons with disabilities.

How do key tags work?

  • Key tags are mailed to Canadians once a year.

  • 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.

You can order your War Amps key tags by visiting here.
