Cornwall police warns residents of door-to-door sales scams



Cornwall Police is warning the public of door-to-door sales scams circulating in the Cornwall area.


Last year on March 1st, a new law came into effect in Ontario, banning the door-to-door sale of a long list of household appliances and services. And police want to  remind residents of these changes, as certain products and services can no longer be offered or sold at your home unless you initiate the transaction by calling/emailing and requesting that the business attends your residence.


These restricted products and services include:

• Furnaces
• Air conditioners
• Air cleaners
• Air purifiers
• Water heaters
• Water treatment devices
• Water purifiers
• Water filters
• Water softeners
• Duct cleaning services
• Any good or service that performs or combines one or more of the above functions


Residents should always be cautious when dealing with someone they do not know. Always ask for proper identification and do not let anyone you do not know into your house.
