Door-to-Door Water Testing Scam

Please be advised door-to-door salespersons are making their way around local neighbourhoods in Kenora asking to enter homes. Once inside, they want to see water lines to install filtration systems, as well as perform a water test showing that the water is unsafe. They are also asking the home owner to fill out an online application and sign a contract while they wait.

The Province of Ontario has banned door-to-door sales since March 1, 2018.  Therefore, door-to-door sales companies are not permitted to solicit business in the City of Kenora and residents should not feel pressure to sign a contract or engage in any water testing.

The City of Kenora drinking water quality must meet strict provincial standards and is regularly tested. Our water is completely safe for human consumption.

Do not let anyone you do not know into your home. Call the OPP if you feel you are in danger.
