Peddlers and Solicitors: What To Know

Peddliers and Solicitors

Throughout the year door-to-door peddling, soliciting, and canvassing raises questions from Blaine residents. 

While most of these activities are regulated by the City, they cannot be prohibited entirely. A canvasser, for example, may go door-to-door without a permit from the City. A canvasser may be a person asking for signatures on a petition, requesting support for a political candidate or position, seeking donations for religious organizations, or fundraising for a school booster club. 

All peddlers and solicitors are required to obtain and wear a City-issued photo identification license that is visible while going door-to-door. 

For your safety Blaine residents should: 

  • Not let a peddler, solicitor, or canvasser into your home, even if they have a permit. 
  • Direct complaints about business practices to the Better Business Bureau at 651-699-1111
  • Check contractor references at dli.mn.gov
  • File any insurance claims at mn.gov/commerce
  •  Report suspicious persons or activities to the police department at 763-427-1212 or by dialing 911.

Please join in helping make Blaine neighborhoods safer by promptly reporting unlicensed solicitors.
