AMBER Alert Program (America's Missing Broadcast Emergency Response)

AMBER Alert in British Columbia is a province-wide partnership that involves:

  • law enforcement agencies in BC
  • BC Association of Broadcasters
  • Childfind BC
  •  BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
  • Canada's wireless telecommunications industry

When Is an AMBER Alert Activated?

AMBER Alert is intended only for the most serious, time-critical child abduction cases. It is not intended for cases involving parental abductions, except in life-threatening situations. AMBER Alert can be used in any abduction that meets the criteria regardless of what relation the abductor has with the victim.
