April 17
​The CheckFirst Café hit the road for the Calgary & Edmonton Home & Garden Shows

Fraud Prevention

The ASC was busy over Fraud Prevention Month, serving coffee, tea and investor education to visitors at the Calgary and Edmonton Home & Garden Shows. Over 60,000 visitors attended each of these shows – perfect locations for the ASC to meet and educate a large number of Albertans.

Our booth had a café theme and at each show we served approximately 2,400 cups of tea and coffee. Between both shows, we gave out a total of 10,000 home-and-garden themed education promotional items. We also had an iPad station set up where visitors could take our quiz to test their investing knowledge.

At both shows, we connected with many Albertans, educating them on the importance of checking first before making an investing decision and where to go for free tools and resources to help them become more informed and educated investors.

We reminded Albertans of the importance of using the National Registration Search to check the registration of the person or company offering them an investment and that the ASC is here to help – our website, checkfirst.ca is full of free and useful information on investing, including suggested steps Albertans can take to help them make educated investing decisions.

In case you missed us at the Home & Garden Shows, you can visit checkfirst.ca anytime to access all of the free ASC resources and tools. See below for some photos of the Calgary Home & Garden Show. Our booth was designed by Everbrave Branding Group, who also took the photos below.
