City advises residents to be wary of door-to-door salespeople

Residents should be on alert for door-to-door salespeople claiming to be authorized by the City to install water filters or inspect hot water tanks.

The City of St. Catharines does not authorize organizations to sell or install water filters on its behalf.

“Residents should always ask to see ID when someone presents themselves as being from the City,” says Mark Green, manager, environmental services. “City employees are required to present photo identification before asking to enter your home.”

Residents are also advised not to provide any bills, contracts or statements to door-to-door salespeople.

Concerned residents should politely ask the salesperson to leave, and should contact police if the salesperson becomes aggressive.
