Who to call if you lose your passport

Guelph Police would like to remind the public about a change in reporting lost Canadian passports. As of March 1, 2014, citizens who lose their Canadian passport in Canada are asked not to call police to report the missing document. Instead, please call Passport Canada directly at 1-800-567-6868. (If you are outside of the country you must report it to the nearest Government of Canada office abroad.)

In the past, citizens were encouraged to report such a loss to their local police as well as Passport Canada. This change is meant to reduce duplication when making these reports.

This change is only for lost passports. If your passport is stolen, please attend the Guelph Police Service to report the crime and then call Passport Canada at 1-800-567-6868.

Prescription drugs

Do you have any expired or unused prescription and over the counter medicine at home? Studies show that more teens are abusing medicine than ever before. One teenager in five has admitted to taking prescription drugs to get high and 75% of them say they stole them from home. Let's work together to keep our children safe

Dispose of expired or unused medications at your local pharmacy it's easy and it's free. Do not share your medications and use only as prescribed failing to do so is dangerous - and too often fatal.

Approach securing your prescriptions the same way you would other valuables - take them out of the medicine cabinet and secure them in a locked cabinet. Spread the word - tell friends and relatives, especially grandparents, to lock up their medicine and to return unused and expired prescriptions to any local pharmacy.

Please do not dispose of these medications in your garbage or by flushing into our water system. Sewage systems cannot remove these medicines from water and so it is released into our lakes and rivers.
