Please see this important message from the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta:
In order for the Government of Canada to help you in times of emergency, we need to know where you are and how to communicate with you.
The Department of Global Affairs Canada operates a Registration of Canadians Abroad service for Canadians travelling or residing abroad. The ROCA registry allows the Department to contact Canadians to offer urgent advice during a natural disaster, civil unrest, or to inform them of a family emergency at home. Registration is voluntary, and personal information provided on the registration form is used in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act. You may register online at: www.travel.gc.ca/travelling/registration
We encourage you to stay connected to the latest travel advice and advisories, and can find our emergency contact information at www.travel.gc.ca also available via our mobile Travel smart application www.travel.gc.ca/mobile or by subscribing to RSS feeds www.travel.gc.ca/rss .
