Help us build a better community
Found Network is a new tech startup based in Charlottetown, PE. We are building better, more connected communities that provide peace-of-mind to those who need it.
Years ago, you used to see Block Parent and Neighbourhood watch signs; however, with busy schedules those are no longer very common.
Now, thanks to Found, there is still a way to help your neighbours and community by playing a small role in building a fully connected community that makes it possible for parents of young children and those dealing with special needs, to be able to confirm their child’s location easily, affordably and in real-time.
Our innovative technology
- Instant Response: Get notified the moment they get home! No need to wait for a random app carrier.
- Waterproof: Durable, waterproof tags for wherever life takes you.
- 12-Month Battery: Found works when you need it. Simply replace the battery on the first day of school each year.
- Getting Closer: Play hot-n-cold in the app to get close and use the buzzer to locate even small objects!

Autism Society of PEI
“Found is going to create a greater peace-of-mind for Island families touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder. It takes a village to raise a child and with the supports of Islanders, this tool will give a sense of security to parents while reducing some of the extra stressors that comes with being a parent of a child with exceptional needs.”
After the FREE pilot, a portion of all revenue will go directly to support the Autism Society of PEI!
Be a FREE Host
You can help your community by hosting a FREE Locator in your home or office. The Locator needs to be plugged in and connected to Wi-Fi, after that, it acts a modern block parent and could provide a crucial location update to the parent of a child who needs it most. For the pilot, they are only available in our pilot zone; however, we plan to expand to the rest of the city at a later date, so sign-up to let us know you want to help when the network is available in your neighbourhood.

We want to create as much coverage as possible in this pilot area to be able to offer “real-time” response virtually anywhere in the covered zone.
After the pilot, anyone wishing to join the network, will receive a Locator they can install anywhere.
FREE Host units will be available in target areas as we expand areas where we are trying to create complete coverage.
Frequently asked questions about Found
What size is the tag?
The tag is 44mm diameter X 10.5mm.
What are the most common uses for Found?
Found is initially being used to provide parents peace-of-mind that they can easily, conveniently, affordably and in real-time locate their child anywhere in our covered areas. Found will allow parents to instantly confirm their child has arrived at school, home or a friend’s house, easily from anywhere on their smart phone. Found offers simple, daily, peace-of-mind.
Is this good for children who walk to and from school?
Found is a simple, convenient way to easily confirm your child’s location. This offers peace-of-mind to virtually all parents but even more to parents with children touched by Autism Spectrum disorder. Children with Autism are at higher risk of wandering – this could be from school, home or a friend’s house. During these times the child may also become disoriented making it all the more important for parents to be able to quickly locate them, should this ever occur. With the help of the community we can build a wide, reliable network that offers parents the peace-of-mind that they can find and help that child in need. As a member of the network or as a free host, you may provide that critical location update to the parent of a vulnerable child, in a moment of need.
