SCAM ALERT!!   Residents should be on alert for door-to-door salespeople claiming to be authorized by the City of St. Catharines to install water filters. 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.
