DOOR TO DOOR SALES

Please be advised that Door to Door Sales are not permitted in the Township of Wellington North as per Business Licensing By-law 46-05.

You are under no obligation to engage with door to door sales people and in fact you are urged to contact the municipality should you encounter door to door sales people.

If you ask a salesperson to leave, they must leave right away. If you feel unsafe do not hesitate to call 911.

Under the Consumer Protection Act, (CPA) if you purchase something in your home that costs more than $50.00, you have the right to cancel a contract for any reason within a 10-day cooling-off period (20 days for water heaters).

TIPS:

  • never give personal information out to a salesperson • do not rely on a salesperson’s opinion that anything in your home is unsafe or should be replaced
  • local utility companies, municipalities, government agencies or regulatory organizations don’t send salespeople door-to-door
  • never sign on the spot
  • never authorize the work to be completed prior to the end of the cooling off period

For more consumer protection information and tips you can access the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services website:
