The Civic Address Registry (CAR) is a province-wide standardized system of identifying and locating homes and businesses. The registry, in addition to traditional methods of locating properties, helps dispatchers and emergency responders (such as police, fire and ambulance) to find your home or business quickly. CAR is especially important when emergency responders are unfamiliar with an area, or when the emergency cannot be seen easily.
The Provincial Emergency Communications Centre will be hosting FREE training this fall to urban and rural municipalities to use the Civic Address Registry:
