has the right to be protected - wherever they are
Across Canada, many people are alone and vulnerable every day. Those fleeing domestic violence, hitchhiking, working in the sex trade, and dealing with the effects of mental illness, addictions, and homelessness are particularly at risk. Aware360, BC SafetyLink, Technology Helps, and Telelink partnered to spearhead the Safer Communities Initiative to bring technological innovation to the aid of vulnerable populations. The program uses smartphone-based technology to offer people help whenever they need it.
The Safer Communities Initiative has launched in various communities across Canada - find out how this program is helping at-risk people.
