Mer­chants: The RCMP Of­fers a Free Work­shop on Coun­ter­feit Money

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The team work­ing on the RCMP’s Mer­chants against Coun­ter­feit­ing pro­gram is of­fer­ing mer­chants and pro­fes­sion­als living in Que­bec a free work­shop, in or­der to raise aware­ness about this is­sue. This is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for mer­chants and em­ploy­ees to learn about the se­cu­rity fea­tures of the new poly­mer ban­knotes and the pre­vi­ous se­ries.

The work­shop will al­low mer­chants to re­ceive in­for­ma­tion that is adapted to their needs, while in­creas­ing aware­ness of var­i­ous means of pro­tec­tion and re­sources avail­able to help keep their busi­nesses se­cure. The pre­sen­ta­tion is of­fered in English or French. In or­der to of­fer a flex­i­ble and ef­fi­cient ser­vice, the team will give a thirty minute pre­sen­ta­tion right at the work­place of the in­ter­ested mer­chants. Ed­u­ca­tional ma­te­rial will be dis­trib­uted to all par­tic­i­pants to pro­mote the pro­gram to all the em­ploy­ees.

The in­ter­ac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion was cre­ated by the Mon­tréal RCMP In­te­grated Coun­ter­feit En­force­ment Team (ICET), as well as the Bank of Canada Ex­ter­nal link, Opens in a new win­dow and the U.S. Se­cret Ser­vice Ex­ter­nal link, Opens in a new win­dow.

In­ter­ested par­ties can ob­tain more in­for­ma­tion by con­tact­ing the RCMP by phone at 1-800-771-5401 or by e-mail at­mu­ni­ca­
