March is Fraud Prevention Month, an opportunity to take a moment to educate Canadians on how to recognize, reject and report fraud.
Fraud is a serious issue that affects all Canadians.
But seniors are more often a prime target of scams.
In fact, fraud is the number one crime against older Canadians
In 2018 alone, older Canadians lost more than 26 million dollars to fraud.
Sharing information and raising fraud awareness are critical in our efforts to combat fraud.
We know that financial security is a priority for older Canadians, and that is why we will continue to provide resources to help seniors make informed decisions and avoid fraud.
To learn more on how to prevent fraud, visit Canada.ca/Seniors or call 1 800 O-Canada.
Seniors have contributed so much to our country, and we in turn must give them the support that they deserve.
