The City of Swift Current is very pleased to announce that, as part of its Being Senior initiative, it will be hosting two Fraud Prevention for Seniors presentations on May 11th and 12th.

 

The presentations are made possible through a partnership with Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism. The sessions are free-of-charge and expected to last approximately one hour.

“We are very fortunate to have the Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism working with us to deliver these presentations,” said Michael Boutilier, Communications & Stakeholder Relations Coordinator for the City of Swift Current. “Our Being Senior initiative is all about engaging and empowering our local seniors, and we’re confident that these presentations will be valuable for seniors and their family members, helping them identify and prevent fraud and scams directed towards them.”

Door-to-door, telephone and online fraud and scams have become quite prevalent in Canada, with vulnerable individuals such as seniors a common target. In fact, according to the Government of Canada, seniors are the most targeted demographic, and fraud is the number one crime against seniors in Canada.

The public Fraud Prevention for Seniors presentations are scheduled as follows:

Thursday, May 11 2017, 6:30 PM in the Pharmasave Meeting Room

Friday, May 12 2017, 10:00 AM in the Great Room at Riverview Village Estates
