Timmins is responding to claims from door-to-door sales people who say they are affiliated with the city. City staff has been receiving calls from residents about the sales people, and they are making it clear that there is no connection. Any documentation provided with the City of Timmins logo or name is just a business license, and is not endorsing the company or its staff.

In order to get a business license, the company has to prove they are legitimate and get a criminal background check for their sales staff.
