Block Parent Program

The Block Parent® Program of Canada Inc. (BPPCI) is a registered charity and Canada’s largest volunteer-run child safety organization. Volunteers from coast to coast help to make communities safer for everyone.

The distinctive red and white Block Parent® window sign in the window of a home, tells children, seniors and others that help is at hand if they are lost, frightened, or in distress.

In addition to their safety network, Block Parents offer community education programs to increase the personal safety of children, teens and seniors.

Working together with educators and police, Block Parents help make your community safer.

RCMP Child Safety Kit

The Child Identification Kit is a small identity passport containing a child’s photograph, fingerprint, blood type, and hair DNA sample. This identity passport is kept safely by the child’s parent(s) and/or guardian(s).

How They Work?

An ink strip is provided for the child’s fingerprints to be taken, then placed in the special location inside the card. A strand of hair pulled from the root to get the DNA should be placed in the clear bag included in the kit. A current photograph on an annual basis will help keep the information up-to-date. Your child’s birthday is an easily remembered date to do this. Then seal the kit and keep it in a secure but readily accessible location. Should the information ever be needed, the kit will save valuable time.

They Are Available At…
