How to Report Fraud

Version français

Once you can identify the types of fraud, and how to recognize it, reporting fraud is the next step in helping to eradicate these crimes. Here are a few resources to keep in mind:

  • To report an insurance crime, scam, fraud or cybercrime, please contact your local police as soon as possible.
  • It is also recommended that you report the instance of a scam, fraud or cybercrime, whether you are a victim or not, to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC).
  • To provide tip information on any insurance related crime, contact Équité Association at 1-877-422-TIPS (English) OR 1-866-422-4331 (service en français) or submit the tip using our online form.
  • To provide anonymous tip information about any type of crime, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or via their online form.  
  • The Competition Bureau accepts reports of misleading or deceptive marketing practices, such as ghost brokers through their online complaint form.

Fighting fraud takes a community and you can make a difference. Your information about suspicious activity can help law enforcement bring criminals to justice and help keep everyone safe.
