Identifying Legitimate Door-To-Door Salespeople

Door-to-door salespeople are licensed with the City of Grande Prairie as a Hawker or Peddler - a person that goes door-to-door selling merchandise and/or a service who does not have a permanent place of business in the City. Licensed Hawkers or Peddlers must also pass a criminal record check.

Approved door-to-door vendors must display their City issued ID card which includes their name and the business license number.

If a salesperson comes to your door and their City ID card is not visible, you can ask to see it. If they don't have an ID card, gather as much information as possible such as business name, name of the representative, phone number and address/location, and report it to Enforcement Services.

Note: Canvassing for non-profit organizations or persons under 18 collecting for fundraisers, youth sports etc. do not require a City license.
