    Alberta Based Charity Fraud Scams

    (403) 245-0533 / (403) 651-9049

    Like all jurisdictions in Canada, charities and volunteer type agencies are today a large part of the social fabric of Alberta.  But, as we have said so often, a booming place like Calgary is ripe for people who are not true charities to misrepresent themselves.

    Service Alberta aggressively regulates charities.

    Any canvasser on behalf of a charitable organization must be able to answer the following questions:

    - the name of the organization they are canvassing on behalf of

    - the cost of funding raising to the organization

    - how much money the organization expects to raise

    - the purpose of the raised funds

    - the corporate and business address of the charity

    - a contact person who is EMPLOYED by the charity

    All charities must register provincially. Always make sure the charity you are supporting is legitimate!
