Services offered by the City of Westmount

The Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR) is a community based public safety initiative in partnership with the municipal public safety department and local community services. The registry promotes communication between vulnerable persons, the people who support them and the City. This information will assist our officers when responding to an emergency involving the vulnerable individual. The registry provides quick access to critical information about a registered person, such as who to call in an emergency, a detailed physical description, and any particular sensitivities that the person may experience.
