Vulnerable Persons Registry (VPR)

The Community Geomatics Centre (CGC) and Accessibility Sault Ste. Marie developed the concept of a GIS-enabled vulnerable persons registry (VPR) in 2003. Both organizations spent from 2003 to 2007 working to make the concept a reality. Approval to proceed was granted by the City of Sault Ste. Marie, PUC Inc. and the Sault Ste. Marie Emergency Management Committee in 2007. Since then an advisory panel has been created and the terms of reference defined. November 2009 marked the beginning of the development phase for the VPR whereby the program attracted over twenty-five local partners.
