Town of New Tecumseth Not Affiliated With Door-to-Door Sales People

Complaints abound

The Town of New Tecumseth says it is not affiliated with any of the companies or individuals going door-to-door offering to inspect or install equipment in the home.

Town officials have received complaints in recent weeks from residents about aggressive sales tactics.

These salespeople may be seeking to gain access to your home and/or suggesting they are conducting water sampling/water meter/water softener/purifier testing/filter installation on behalf of the municipality.

The Town says it has no affiliation with such individuals or companies and does not endorse such activity.

Any time town representatives come knocking officials say they will have appropriate identification and likely be in an official Town of New Tecumseth vehicle.

Some points to remember should you choose to open your door to a salesperson:

  • Do not invite the person(s) inside
  • Do not sign any documents under pressure
  • If you are not interested in what is being offered or if they use aggressive tactics, ask them to leave your property. If you are suspicious, immediately report the incident to police (the non-emergency line of the Nottawasaga OPP is 1-888-310-112
  • If you have questions or concerns about any door-to-door experience you have had, call the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services at 1-800-889-9768.
