What is the Vulnerable Person Registry?
The Vulnerable Person Registry is a fully voluntary registration system which allows citizens to record vital information pertaining to themselves, vulnerable family members, or other persons in their care. It can be found on the City of Fredericton's website. This information will be used to assist police and other emergency services personnel, in the event of an incident involving the registered person. Once the form is filled out, please mail or drop off the completed form to the Fredericton Police Department.
Autism Connections will no longer be accepting the Vulnerable Persons Registry forms, they must be submitted directly to the Fredericton Police
Definition of a “Vulnerable” Person
A Vulnerable Person is defined as a person who due to a medical, mental health or physical condition (diagnosed or undiagnosed), may exhibit patterns of behaviour that could increase risk of harm to themselves or others.
Examples where a vulnerable person or their caretaker may consider registering:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Acquired Brain Injury
Individuals who have a tendency to wander
Individuals who have difficulty with verbal communication
Individuals with fascination/attractions (drawn to water, construction sites, roadways, etc).
Individuals who may respond to social situations with fear, aggression or running away.
Annual registration is required to keep your form active. It is the responsibility of the applicant to re-submit the form on a yearly basis with any required updates. It is recommended that you re-submit on the registrant’s birthday to make it easier to remember.
Please include a colour photograph of the vulnerable person with every registration. All registrations will be confirmed by a member of the Fredericton Police Force.

York Sunbury Ground Search & Rescue
The York Sunbury Ground Search & Rescue program is pleased to introduce Project Lifesaver. This new initiative allows caregivers of individuals with autism spectrum disorder or other diverse needs to monitor a person's location through the use of a wearable wristband in the event of an emergency. In the event that the wearer were to go missing, the search and rescue team would use the wristband to track the individual's location and facilitate the search process.
For more information, contact the York Sunbury Search & Rescue team for a free consultation.
